Australia researchers are calling on storm chasers and members of the general public fascinated by severe weather to take part in a citizen science project that will help better capture the occurrence of extreme weather events and improve our ability to forecast them.Read More
High resolution ocean modelling has found the world’s strongest ocean currents, which play key roles in fisheries and ocean ecosystems, will experience more intense marine heatwaves than the global average over coming decades.Read More
Climate change will affect prescribed burning days in the future. Unexpectedly, it is not all bad news, but as the coming century progresses there are definitely changes ahead for our firefighters in Australia when it comes to preparing for a fire season, especially along the east coast of Australia.Read More
CLEX researchers and colleagues have highlighted the need for the development of systems to predict marine heatwaves, which are a growing threat to marine ecosystems and industries as the climate changes.Read More
The most advanced and comprehensive analysis of climate sensitivity yet undertaken has revealed with more confidence than ever before how sensitive the Earth’s climate is to carbon dioxide. The range has been reduced from 1.5°C-4.5°C down to 2.3°C-4.5°C.Read More
The first comprehensive worldwide assessment of heatwaves down to regional levels has revealed that in nearly every part of the world heatwaves have been increasing in frequency and duration since the 1950’s. The research has also produced a new metric, cumulative heat, which reveals exactly how much heat is packed into individual heatwaves and heatwave seasons.Read More
Kim Reid describes everything you ever wanted to know about atmospheric rivers, and then some. Front, Warm Conveyor Belt, Atmospheric River, Tropical Moisture Exports and Flexible Tubes. Are these phrases describing different phenomenon or are they merely alternative names for same system?Read More
CLEX researchers have developed Australia’s longest daily temperature record, identifying a decrease in cold extremes and an increase in heatwaves around Adelaide since 1838.Read More
An analysis of new climate model projections by Australian researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes shows southwestern Australia and parts of southern Australia will see longer and more intense droughts due to a lack of rainfall caused by climate change.Read More
PhD opportunities are now available to work on projects jointly supervised across the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and Bureau of Meteorology. Candidates will be enrolled in one of the CLEX universities and spend significant time at the Bureau of Meteorology. This will allow the student to experience both the University academic and the publicly funded research agency environment.Read More
Charuni writes about the stress of facing a PhD confirmation during a pandemic and how doing a PhD has changed her attitude to herself. She also suggests some approaches that have made the confirmation process a little easier.Read More
