|CWR Presents: : The activities of the Bureau of Meteorology in WA,
Glenn Cook will describe the activities of the Bureau of Meteorology in WA, in the WA Regional Office in Perth, and in particular in the WA Climate Services Centre (CSC).
His talk will focus on the Data Services, Climate Monitoring, and Climate
Forecasting roles of the WA CSC, whilst also highlighting various aspects of past and future weather and climate observation in WA. Online climate data resources will be explained along with some background to the Australian Data Archive for Meteorology (ADAM), and their underpinning of climate trend analysis and climate change monitoring in WA.
Glenn Cook has been a meteorologist with the Bureau of Meteorology for just over 20 years. After graduating with a Physics Degree from the University of Melbourne in 1989, Glenn was recruited by the Bureau and completed a Graduate Diploma of Meteorology in 1990. He was posted to Perth in late 1990 and worked in the WA Regional Forecasting Centre as an operational meteorologist until 2000. However, between 1992 and 1994,
Glenn was seconded to the RAAF special reserve to take on the position of Officer-in-Charge of the Meteorological Office at RAAF Base Tindal, in the Top End of the NT, providing weather forecasting services to the F/A 18 fighter squadron.
In 2000, Glenn commenced work in the WA Climate Services Centre of the Bureau of Meteorology as a consulting meteorologist, and since 2006 has been the WA Regional Climate Services Manager. The Centre’s role is to provide WA climate data and monitoring services, as well as communicate information about past climate, climate forecasting, and climate change.
