The science behind climate extremes is fascinating and diverse.
Our experts love to share their work with the media, websites like The Conversation and here at climateextremes.org.au – here’s some of their latest articles.
Note: sometimes we also share work and articles from researchers and organisations not directly affiliated or funded by our Centre. We love to share interesting work done by others in our field. If you’d like to share or adapt our work, please get in touch – email firstname.lastname@example.org
El Niño brings hot and dry weather to the eastern states, but what about the rest of Australia? Explore the impacts of El Niño with this new interactive map.
In September we went past 1.5 degrees. In November, we tipped over 2 degrees for the first time. What’s going on?
The climate is enormously complex. We should see the first day 2°C warmer than the same day in the pre-industrial period as a stark warning – but not as a sign to give up.
A monster eddy current is spinning into existence off the coast of Sydney. Will it bring a new marine heatwave?
What happens to eddies? Like atmospheric systems, these are effectively heat engines. They transport heat to new areas as they whirl in the ocean.
“Over a lot of places, hail-prone days have decreased, but in some places they have significantly increased.”
We hope to better understand how our oceans are changing using what we observe in space, at sea — and in the playground.
By far the biggest contributor to the overall +1.7°C global temperature anomaly is human-caused climate change.
