Nathaniel Bindoff (UTas / CLEX) & Jess Melbourne Thomas (CSIRO) Summary: Two Tasmanian authors of the UN report on oceans and climate change discuss the implications for Australia and its surrounds. In September 2019 the UN Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) released its Special Report on the Oceans and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC). The report assesses the physical processes and impacts of climate change on ocean, coastal, polar and mountain ecosystems. It also assesses the consequences for... View Article

IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing climate: Key findings for ocean and polar regionsMarch 2, 2020 3:30 pm Leave your thoughts
Nathaniel Bindoff (UTas / CLEX) In September 2019 the IPCC released its Special Report on the Oceans and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC), which assesses physical processes and impacts of climate change on ocean, coastal, polar and mountain ecosystems. It also assesses consequences for human communities and options for people to adapt to climate-related changes for a more sustainable future. In this seminar, I summarise and highlight the significance of key findings from this report for the oceans and... View Article
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.
Research from RP2, highlights how bushfires may change in the future, explores differences in heatwaves and shows how Antarctic conditions can affect Australia.

The Philippines is one of the most exposed countries in the world to tropical cyclones. In order to provide information to help the country build resilience and plan for a future under a warmer climate, researchers built on previous research to investigate implications of future climate change on tropical cyclone activity in the Philippines.
This was PhD student Charuni Pathmeswaran's first CLEX Winter School. It was an intense and challenging week, but it also gave her an opportunity to explore Melbourne. By week's end Charuni was motivated and had added a range of new skills she will apply to her research.
The Coupled Model Intercomparison Project (CMIP6) Model Analysis Workshop was held in Barcelona from March 25-28, 2019, and provided the first opportunity for results from CMIP6 models to be discussed and presented by the modelling community.
The Climate Variability program has seen an extraordinary amount of activity over the past four months with new arrivals, a clutch of thesis submissions, awards, research voyages and a wealth of research.
