ECR Workshop 2020

December 12, 2020 6:07 pm Published by Comments Off on ECR Workshop 2020

With the drama and instability of 2020, many of our ECRs have faced unprecedented challenges including loneliness, homesickness and the mounting uncertainties for their future careers. That latter concern may be why the majority of ECRs wanted this year's virtual ECR workshop to focus on the Future in academia and planning your research career.

IPCC Special Report on the Ocean and Cryosphere in a changing climate: Key findings for ocean and polar regions

March 18, 2020 2:00 pm Published by 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

Public lecture: Oceans, ice and climate change: An IPCC update

March 2, 2020 8:00 am Published by Leave your thoughts

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

Research brief: How heat in the Indian Ocean moves between the ocean and atmosphere

September 6, 2019 2:40 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: How heat in the Indian Ocean moves between the ocean and atmosphere

In this study, CLEX researchers use two years of measurements from a flux mooring combined with satellite data and model outputs to understand the seasonal changes in air‐sea fluxes and the role of ocean currents in controlling ocean surface temperatures in the southeast Indian Ocean.

RP4 Climate variability and teleconnections report: December 18

November 30, 2018 12:57 pm Published by Comments Off on RP4 Climate variability and teleconnections report: December 18

It has been a very active time for the Climate Variability and Teleconnections Research Program in terms of research and engagement activities right across the team, including two expeditions - one drilling coral cores in the tropics and another going south to the Antarctic Circumpolar Current.

A voyage on RV Investigator – Training observers of the deep ocean

November 27, 2018 4:07 pm Published by Comments Off on A voyage on RV Investigator – Training observers of the deep ocean

The RV Investigator returned to Hobart after a 32-day voyage to map a meander of the Antarctic Circumpolar Current (ACC) Polar Front. Onboard were 11 CLEX students and postdocs; three international students; a film maker and visual artist; and collaborators from CSIRO, Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre, and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution.

Research brief: Drivers of Antarctic sea ice volume change in CMIP 5 models

October 8, 2018 2:53 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: Drivers of Antarctic sea ice volume change in CMIP 5 models

CLEX researchers find that ocean sea-ice models generally agreed on changes to average yearly cycle of freeze and melt in Antarctica, with dynamic processes dominating the sea ice edge and thermodynamic processes dominating the interior of the sea ice pack. However, the models disagreed about the trends of sea ice volume.
