January Scientist of the Month: Dr. Lynda Chambers

January 2014

Lynda is a zoologist and climatologist based at the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research (Australian Bureau of Meteorology). She specialises in climate impact and adaptation research, in particular its interface with Australian flora and fauna.

Much of her current research involves understanding how climate drives phenology (timing of natural events), as well as the use of traditional ecolological knowledge for weather and climate forecasting.

Lynda is actively involved in community based science programs, including research on Little Penguin and water quality monitoring, and she has been involved in the ClimateWatch program since its inception.
