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.

The Glasgow Climate Conference of Parties, COP26, is almost certain to fall short of its first goal to “keep 1.5°C within reach”. Moreover, even if it achieved its other aim to “secure global net-zero by mid-century” there is still a high probability that global temperatures will exceed 2°C if this isn’t matched by increased short-term action as well. That’s the message coming from climate scientists from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX).

You may have heard about the influence of sea surface temperatures (SSTs) in the tropical Pacific Ocean on Australia’s climate and how forecasts of the El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) help to give warnings of flood, drought and bushfire risk in Australia months in advance… but what about the tropical Indian Ocean?

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.
