AMSI at Greenhouse2011
Cairns Convention Centre
4-8 April 2011
Greenhouse 2011, held in Cairns in April, was host to AMSI’s Industry Event this year. AMSI’s one-day session, “Climate Uncertainty and Risk”, was very popular. The session examined current methods and challenges in quantifying, communicating and dealing with uncertainty in climate change projections. Peter Hayman (SARDI) and Kevin Hennessy (CSIRO) gave keynote talks at the session.
Scott Power, research manager and a research scientist in the Bureau of Meteorology, was the AMSI plenary lecturer.
AMSI subsidised registration for a number of researchers and sponsored the attendance of a number of prospective AMSI interns on the lookout for challenges in the environmental sector.
