As well as winning a Pulitzer Prize, the RP2 team has been working closely on improving models, developed two new metrics and through studying marine heatwaves may have revealed a method of forecasting these heatwaves around Tasmania up to two years ahead.

This project will focus on the connection between conceptual climate models and high resolution general circulation models (GCMs). The student will analyse simplified models that represent teleconnection behaviour and calibrate them to reflect the settings of a GCM. The student will also have access to high dimensional GCM output and can compare an ensemble of “real-world” simulations to the behaviour of the conceptual model using statistical methods.
CSIRO02: Analysing long tide gauge records in Australia in conjunction with the 20th Century reanalysis to better understand how extreme events and by association extreme sea level events are changingAugust 6, 2020 1:46 pm Comments Off on CSIRO02: Analysing long tide gauge records in Australia in conjunction with the 20th Century reanalysis to better understand how extreme events and by association extreme sea level events are changing
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.
CSIRO01: When will the ozone layer recover? Estimating ozone layer recovery from climate model projectionsAugust 6, 2020 1:45 pm Comments Off on CSIRO01: When will the ozone layer recover? Estimating ozone layer recovery from climate model projections
The student will produce estimates of the future evolution of ozone depleting substance concentrations, so the recovery date of the ozone hole can be estimated. Importantly, it will also be possible to estimate the uncertainty around the recovery date.
CLEX researchers and colleagues have highlighted the need for the development of systems to predict marine heatwaves, which are a growing threat to marine ecosystems and industries as the climate changes.
Tiny microbes at the base of the ocean food chain will be increasingly affected by marine heatwaves as the climate changes.
Australian researchers assess the ability of recently released climate models to simulate the climate of Australia and the new scenarios for 21st Century climate change.
Onboard the RV Investigator as part of a scientific voyage over Christmas and new year, Rob Warren encountered a spectacular storm and performed research that will continue to improve Australia's radar network.
Often climate change communication takes a top-down approach, with experts telling the general public what they think people need to know. Clara Rodriguez Vives was part of the Curious Climate experiment, which takes an approach that completely turns that top-down model on its head.
Research on heatwaves and droughts by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes supports a major international report on Climate Change and LandDecember 11, 2019 11:11 am Comments Off on Research on heatwaves and droughts by the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes supports a major international report on Climate Change and Land
This research brief examines how research from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes informed the IPCC Special Report on Climate Change and Land.
