Tiny microbes at the base of the ocean food chain will be increasingly affected by marine heatwaves as the climate changes.

Often climate change communication takes a top-down approach, with experts telling the general public what they think people need to know. Clara Rodriguez Vives was part of the Curious Climate experiment, which takes an approach that completely turns that top-down model on its head.

PhD opportunity: Water, elevated CO2 and growth: plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experimentAugust 30, 2019 10:26 am Comments Off on PhD opportunity: Water, elevated CO2 and growth: plant ecophysiological responses in a Free Air CO2 Enrichment experiment
This project will involve measurements in a cutting-edge global change field experiment to close this knowledge gap by examining plant growth responses to elevated CO2 during repeated drought cycles.
PhD opportunity: Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2August 30, 2019 10:19 am Comments Off on PhD opportunity: Unravelling the role of lags and legacies in explaining the response of grasslands to elevated CO2
This project will apply a state of the art, hierarchical Bayesian modelling framework to determine how past climatic conditions influence current responses to high CO2concentrations. The project will use data from a new, specially-designed experiment, as well as results from past Free-Air Carbon dioxide Enrichment (FACE) and Open-top chamber (OTC) experiments, to close this knowledge gap.
Project: To investigate rapid shallow-water/coastal marine cooling events characterised by sudden transitions from marine heatwave to marine cold spell conditions, and the risk likelihood to vulnerable fish species.

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.
