Denisse Fierro Arcos is back in Australia completing her first semester as a PhD student at the University of Tasmania’s Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS). Her project focuses on understanding how fine scale changes in sea ice and ocean conditions affect Southern Ocean marine ecosystems. This is her first blog post.

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.
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.
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.
