What would happen if we suddenly warmed the entire ocean at the sea-surface? Would suddenly cooling it down cause an equal and opposite response? Using ocean climate models we have carried out these and many more extreme experiments. The student will explore the asymmetric and often surprising behaviour of the ocean.

The Australian Alps are the highest mountain range in Australia and is an important region in terms of ecosystem, biodiversity, energy generation and winter tourism. Alpine areas are vulnerable to climate change. This project will use NARCLiM simulations to analyse the relationship between warming rates and changes in albedo and surface energy budget.
In this webinar, John Clarke will provide a demonstration of how to use the newly released Thresholds Calculator v2.0 to estimate the frequency of future hot, cold, wet and dry extremes under different emissions scenarios.
