This paper focuses on a case study to provide a methodology for how the costs associated with an extreme weather event may be shared between citizens and envisage how such a system could look in future.

Strong ocean currents are found on the western side of the ocean basins, which flow from the tropics toward the poles in both hemispheres. These western boundary currents have shown strong changes in the last few decades, resulting in intensified ocean warming and are projected to amplify further in the future.

90% of the heat trapped on Earth by anthropogenic greenhouse gasses is absorbed by the ocean, with the unfortunate by-product of thermosteric sea level rise - as the ocean warms, it expands. Therefore, it is essential that we can accurately measure how much heat the ocean is absorbing over time.

The Weddell Gyre, located east of the Antarctic Peninsula, is one of the largest features of the ocean circulation of the Southern Hemisphere. A deeper understanding of the dynamics in this remote region will shed light on the role of the gyre in our present climate and help us understand its potential evolution with climate change.

CLEX researchers used a state-of-the-art global ocean-sea-ice model to directly measure the overturning circulation, and through this to examine the relationship between the Ekman Streamfunction and the Southern Ocean overturning circulation.

This review brings together a new understanding of the ocean-atmosphere system in the Indian Ocean since the last comprehensive review, describing the Indian Ocean circulation patterns, air-sea interactions and climate variability.

In this paper, as part of the Future Seas project, the researchers built upon previous work by using a foresighting scenario analysis technique to envision two alternative possible futures for society by 2030, in the context of the challenge of climate change adaptation and mitigation.

During the 2020 La Nina, many areas of Australia received near average to severely below-average rainfall, particularly during November. CLEX researchers found that several compounding factors contributed to the drier-than anticipated spring conditions.

Variability in urban land-use results in microclimatic variability across a city that is not picked up by government weather station networks. Crowdsourced weather stations can fill these gaps.

CLEX researchers and colleagues used a land-surface model that considered groundwater dynamics to explain how groundwater sustains transpiration and eases plant heat pressure during the heatwaves that occurred during the Millennium Drought and the 2017-2019 severe drought over southeast Australia.
