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.

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.

This study assesses long-term changes in Australia’s future photovoltaic potential and the effects of projected changes in our climate on PV power generation capacity for the near and far-future periods.

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.

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.

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.

The Australian bushfires of the 2019/2020 summer had far-reaching effects. It has now been revealed in new research published in Nature that the smoke produced a phytoplankton bloom larger in area than all of Australia, thousands of kilometres away in the Southern Ocean between New Zealand and South America.

Predicting how much primary production will further increase in the Arctic Ocean in coming decades depends on the interplay between the increase in light for primary producers, as the sea ice extent and thickness decrease, and the availability of food in the form of nutrients, such as nitrate, phosphate, and silica.

Using model simulations of the movement of tuna distributions across the tropical Pacific subject to projected ocean changes, the researchers found that without strong mitigation efforts, tuna distributions are likely to shift away from island fishing zones.
