Dale Grey – Agriculture Victoria
Even if you think you ‘know a bit about the weather’, this podcast will surprise you!
Starting with the surprising source of South Australia’s rain (spoiler: it’s not the Southern Ocean) Dale expertly describes the impact of ENSO/El Nino, the Indian Ocean Dipole, Southern Oscillation Index and more.
His knowledge shows just how much we depend on climate drivers happening 1,000 of kilometres away.
Dale draws together the distant sources of moisture, features that carry the water south and the local triggers that finally turn it into rain.
He also explains how parts of the state ended up being subject to extraordinary amounts of rainfall over recent months – and why it’s too soon to predict how the 2022 growing season will be.
