To better understand the implications of the latest climate science for Tasmania, this brief combines information from the IPCC AR6 WG1 report, with regional assessments that contributed to the UTAS Blueprint for a climate-positive Tasmania, and expertise from the Australian Research Council Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes (CLEX). The regional information is based on Tasmania-specific downscaled modelling undertaken by Climate Futures for Tasmania.

For four weeks in May and June this year, Maurice Huguenin was fortunate enough to take part in an oceanographic research voyage aboard CSIRO’s RV Investigator from Hobart to Brisbane.
This study is based the well-established fact that sea ice cover is very closely related to surface air temperature, so that we can use trends in Antarctic sea ice as an independent validation for the reanalysis trends.
CLEX authors and colleagues from major Australian science organisations investigating climate examined the simulation of Australian climate in the new, state-of-the-art Coupled Model Intercomparison Project, phase 6 (CMIP6) models.
In May this year, Maxime Marin with a team from CLEX took part in the International Indian Ocean Expedition (IIOE 2) aboard the RV Investigator. With good weather most of the way, it was an experience he recalls with great fondness.
New students, an OA for Andy Pitman and some key work on evaporation, the impacts of mesophyll conductance on plant growth, a new algorithm for photosynthesis and future projections of drought made for a strong start to 2019.
Researchers develop a novel algorithm that should enable improved prediction of the function of global ecosystems in a warming climate.
