This study uses a high‐resolution climate model to investigate how and why marine heatwaves would change for the Australian region. The relative impacts of increases on background ocean temperature and changes to intrinsic temperature variations are compared.

Graduate Director Melissa Hart describes the Homeward Bound training experience that took her to Antarctica and encourages other women in STEMM to take part.
The aim of this project is to quantify the main differences between Heinrich events in terms of ocean circulation changes, and climate impacts. The student will gather published proxy data for a few of the most prominent events and compare these with existing climate model simulations.
The selected student will simulate past events of rapid climate change with an Earth System Climate Model and compare the simulated changes in biological productivity with existing data from sediment cores.
Past observations suggest future global warming may eventually be twice as warm as projected by climate models under business-as-usual scenarios and sea levels may rise 6m at 2°C.
