The discovery of changing eddy energy was made by a team of ANU and UNSW researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Their work, published today in Nature Climate Change, shows clear changes to the distribution and strength of these eddies, which had not been previously detected.

The 2019/20 Black Summer bushfires are a “wake up call” demonstrating the extreme effects of climate change in Australia, according to a group of experts who’ve published a new study examining the factors that caused the disaster.
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.
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.
The aim of this student project is to investigate the effect of bias correction and downscaling methods on hydrological projections for Australia.
The proposed project involves generalising FourierFlows.jl so that it can run both on CPUs and on GPUs effortlessly. Running simulations on GPUs will enable up to 100 or even 200-times speedups.
The ANU School of Regulation and Global Governance (RegNet) and the ANU Climate Change Institute (CCI) are joining forces to host this half day symposium to tackle the current climate and health crisis. Led by Professor Sharon Friel (Director, RegNet), the symposium will bring together experts from academia, civil society and government, with a focus on public health, climate science, regulatory governance, and public policy. The symposium will include a Radio National Big Ideas panel discussion hosted by Paul Barclay, and will conclude with a launch... View Article
Description Climate Update 2019 – Sydney will present an overview of how our climate is changing and how we are responding to these changes in Australia and around the world. You’ll hear from experts, practitioners and leading commentators, including from UTS and the Australian National University (ANU). Part 1 will summarise the latest climate research, including a snapshot of newly released data on how our climate changed in 2018. Part 2 will discuss climate action, its economic opportunities and risks and... View Article
PhD student Jess Hargreaves along with chief investigator Nerilie Abram travelled to Christmas Island to retrieve coral cores that contained more than 200-years worth of detail on sea-levels and rainfall.
When Chilean researcher Dr Erasmo Macaya from Universidad de Concepción and Centro IDEAL stumbled upon foreign kelp washed up on an Antarctic beach, he knew he had found something significant. Research by an international, multidisciplinary team of scientists reveals just how important that finding was.
