By comparing two models, CLEX researchers found that the current generation of convection parameterisations fail to replicate the random, chaotic nature of real-life turbulent convection.

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
Ever wonder how the oceans coped with ice ages? What sort of changes might have happened? And how can we study these now? Don you Tassie Tuxedo and come down to the Hobart Brewing Company to explore these chilly topics on a chilly July night with Zanna Chase of IMAS.
We are seeking a summer student to help understand the asymmetric and often surprising behaviour of the ocean in response to rapid warming and cooling to better understand the ocean's role in climate change.
Using novel ocean glider technology, a team of researchers from France, Norway, and Australia observed small eddy-like lenses of cold water in July 2017 along the western Svalbard shelf in the Arctic.
The aim of this project is to gain a better understanding of the drivers of seasonal climate extremes over Australia, with a focus on the potential role of tropical ocean basins. The student researcher will use a range of observations and climate model outputs to examine the variability of extreme temperature and rainfall across Australia.
The Climate Variability and Teleconnections Research Program has formed into three separate clusters – SAM, Tropical Variability and Oceans.
