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

UNSW02: Pushing the ocean to extremes

July 19, 2019 2:00 am Published by Comments Off on UNSW02: Pushing the ocean to extremes

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.

MON3: Impact of tropical sea surface temperatures on climate extremes in Australia

August 14, 2018 3:32 pm Published by Comments Off on MON3: Impact of tropical sea surface temperatures on climate extremes in Australia

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.
