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.

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.

Climate sensitivity describes how sensitive the Earth’s temperature is to a doubling of the amount of carbon dioxide in the atmosphere. One measure of climate sensitivity for projections of future climate is the Equilibrium Climate Sensitivity (ECS). ECS is the increase in the global average temperature between the pre-industrial era and a future doubled carbon dioxide climate once equilibrium of the climate has been reached.

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.

This paper used statistical techniques to investigate changes in extreme climate events that currently occur, on average, only once every 20 years. These techniques are applied to data related to heat, rainfall, drought and conditions conducive to bushfires and thunderstorms from detailed climate modelling commissioned by NSW and ACT Governments.

An international team of authors led by NCAR scientist and CLEX PI Jerry Meehl, along with CLEX CIs and AIs, propose that the Pacific and Atlantic ocean basins are mutually interactive, with each basin influencing and responding to processes in the other basin.

The ESCC hub has provided climate science data to Northern Territory mango growers that will help them prepare for a future where cultivating mangoes may be more difficult.

Understanding historical changes in extreme sea levels is necessary for the accurate projection of their changes over the next century. This project will look at digitized sea level data, to better understand the causes of extreme sea levels the southern Australian region and how these events vary over the duration of the record.

This project will examine whether ACCESS-S1 model can replicate the observed seasonal pattern of extreme rainfall timing in Australia, and the relationship with large-scale drivers.

An analysis of new climate model projections by Australian researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes shows southwestern Australia and parts of southern Australia will see longer and more intense droughts due to a lack of rainfall caused by climate change.
