If you are a stormchaser or just someone who loves the theatre of wind, lightning, heavy rain and hail when a storm whips through, then you are perfectly placed to help climate science with the new WeatheX app.

Research brief: Drivers of Antarctic sea ice volume change in CMIP 5 models

October 8, 2018 2:53 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Drivers of Antarctic sea ice volume change in CMIP 5 models

CLEX researchers find that ocean sea-ice models generally agreed on changes to average yearly cycle of freeze and melt in Antarctica, with dynamic processes dominating the sea ice edge and thermodynamic processes dominating the interior of the sea ice pack. However, the models disagreed about the trends of sea ice volume.

Research brief: How strong currents influence Tasmania’s marine heatwaves

October 8, 2018 12:09 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: How strong currents influence Tasmania’s marine heatwaves

An unusually strong East Australian Current extension leads to an increased probability of marine heatwave days around Tasmania. Conversely, a strong Zeehan Current during these seasons decreased the probability of marine heatwave days in this region.

Research brief: Summertime Heatwaves in Brisbane

September 25, 2018 11:20 am Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Summertime Heatwaves in Brisbane

Heat waves are the deadliest natural hazard in Australia. Motivated by the prediction that the number of extremely hot days in subtropical Australia will increase in a warmer climate, this study aims to develop a comprehensive picture of the processes leading to extreme temperatures.
