VCCC Monday Lunch Live As we begin a new decade, Australian company boards remain dominated by men, with female representation still sitting at less than 30 per cent. That’s not the case at the Victorian Comprehensive Cancer Centre (VCCC) alliance, where women make up the majority of Board Members and committee chairs. Indeed, most of these women are CEOs of their home institutions. Over the past few years, the VCCC alliance has grown from a fledgling concept to a dynamic,…

The predictability of tropical Pacific decadal variability: Insights from attractor reconstruction

March 4, 2020 @ 2:00 pm - 3:00 pm
Climate Change Research Centre (CCRC), 4th Floor, Matthews Building, UNSW
Kensington, NSW 2052 Australia

Nandini Ramesh (University of California) The decadal-interdecadal variability of the tropical Pacific region has been shown to have wide-ranging impacts on hydroclimate on multiple continents, the rate of global mean sea surface temperature rise, and marine ecosystems. However, the small number of interdecadal shifts that have occurred during the observed period poses a significant challenge to developing an understanding of the mechanisms that drive this variability and whether it is potentially predictable. In this study, we make use of a…

Daniel Goll (University of Augsburg):  Phosphorus controls on land carbon uptake Phosphorus is a critical element for all life on Earth, but rarely in abundant supply. As a result, biological processes are often limited by phosphorus which has consequences for greenhouse gas exchanges, food & fibre production as well as (nature-based) negative emission technologies. In this talk, the role of phosphorus in land carbon cycling and climate change mitigation is being discussed based on results from the land surface model…
