Changing ocean eddies reorganise ocean energy

April 23, 2021 1:01 am Published by Comments Off on Changing ocean eddies reorganise ocean energy

The discovery of changing eddy energy was made by a team of ANU and UNSW researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes. Their work, published today in Nature Climate Change, shows clear changes to the distribution and strength of these eddies, which had not been previously detected.

Research brief: The shortcomings of convection-resolving models

July 3, 2020 3:53 pm Published by Comments Off on Research brief: The shortcomings of convection-resolving models

A new paper by Martin Jucker and colleagues reveals the choice of a particular convection-resolving model (CRM) has a much larger impact on the results than increasing resolution. It also suggests the behaviour of CRMs is tied to model internals instead of the phenomena they are trying to reproduce.

Climate recorded in seawater: A workshop on water-mass transformation analysis for ocean and climate studies

August 2, 2019 2:30 am Published by Comments Off on Climate recorded in seawater: A workshop on water-mass transformation analysis for ocean and climate studies

In early February 2019 an international cohort of around 40 oceanographers, marine biogeochemists and climate modellers gathered at UNSW to discuss the use of the Water Mass Transformation (WMT) framework for studies of ocean physics, biogeochemistry and climate. The workshop was an initiative of several CLEX early career researchers and gained interest from a diverse international community.
