Research brief: New method produces more precise and complete representation of wave climate variability

May 8, 2019 1:23 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: New method produces more precise and complete representation of wave climate variability

CLEX researchers present a new method to examine seasonal variations in the global wave climate that accounts for the full directional wave spectra and includes wave systems with different frequencies and directions separately.

Two workshops, the Sea Ice Modelling Workshop and Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes “Southern Annular Mode (SAM) Cluster” workshop were held together at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in Hobart from February 19-21.

Seminar: Capturing marine biodiversity: New tools and a glimpse of the future

October 16, 2018 1:00 pm Published by Leave your thoughts

As human pressures on natural systems escalate, understanding and predicting the distribution biodiversity, now and into the future, has become increasingly important for managing marine systems. Biological data are usually sparse and patchy, yet managers need comprehensive information at broad spatial scales to make important decisions such as prioritising areas for conservation (e.g. Marine Protected Areas), managing the impacts of activities such as fishing and deep-sea mining, and developing response plans to climate change. Our three speakers will discuss the... View Article

Hotter, longer, more frequent – marine heatwaves on the rise

April 9, 2018 6:30 am Published by 1 Comment

An international study in Nature Communications co-authored by researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX) and the Institute of Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) reveals globally marine heatwaves have increased over the past century in number, length and intensity as a direct result of warming oceans.
