Research brief: The rare event that amplified the dry Australian spring of 2019 is unlikely to happen again

May 27, 2021 12:11 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: The rare event that amplified the dry Australian spring of 2019 is unlikely to happen again

An unusual southern stratospheric warming event amplified the conditions that led to the Black Summer bushfires of 2019/20. CLEX researchers explored how frequently these rare warming events may occur with climate change.

Research brief: How Central Pacific El Niños affect rainfall over the Murray Darling basin

March 18, 2021 1:16 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: How Central Pacific El Niños affect rainfall over the Murray Darling basin

This research around central Pacific El Niños is important for agricultural and water resources planning efforts in the Murray Darling Basin region and may help with seasonal prediction efforts to predict drought‐breaking rain such as occurred in early 2020.

RP4 Teleconnections & Variability Report – December 2020

December 14, 2020 11:45 am Published by Comments Off on RP4 Teleconnections & Variability Report – December 2020

It has been remarkable how much we have achieved in this extraordinarily difficult year. Research coming out of the Teleconnections and Variability program over the past four months has strongly focused on how influences in one part of the world can have direct impacts on another.

RP4 Climate Variability and Teleconnections report – August 2020

Despite the pandemic, the recent few months have seen a range of triumphs with completed PhDs being prominent among them. Our research has revealed the powerful influence of small scale and large scale ocean processes on our current and future climate.

Need for prediction of marine heatwaves

July 29, 2020 11:40 am Published by Comments Off on Need for prediction of marine heatwaves

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.

Mon02: Evaluate how the the IPO modulates precipitation extremes and drought risk across tropical continents

July 18, 2019 3:00 am Published by Comments Off on Mon02: Evaluate how the the IPO modulates precipitation extremes and drought risk across tropical continents

In this project, we will investigate the links between precipitation extremes and the Interdecadal Pacific Oscillation (IPO), including its signature in El Niño–Southern Oscillation (ENSO) impacts, across tropical land regions.

ANU01: Are recent climate extremes really ‘extreme’?

July 15, 2019 1:00 am Published by Comments Off on ANU01: Are recent climate extremes really ‘extreme’?

This project will use output from state-of-the-art climate simulations of the Last Millennium (850–2005 CE) to explore the long-term variability of an Australian climate driver of the student’s choice. The student will explore the natural variability of that driver to determine its long-term context, and compare with palaeoclimate reconstructions (proxies) where possible.

Distant processes influence marine heatwaves around the world

An international team, led by Australian researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and the Institute for Marine and Antarctic (IMAS) studies, have published in Nature Communications the first global assessment of the major drivers of marine heatwaves.
