Weighing the evidence for and against more frequent extreme mid-latitude weather in response to Arctic warming
28 January 2015 | Seminar

The Arctic sea ice cover is becoming less extensive and thinner. Positive feedbacks associated with diminishing sea ice amplify surface warming in the Arctic region.

Feeling the stress in Melbourne: Heat stress, dehydration, air pollution and pollen
20 January 2015 | Seminar

Humans are at risk from exposure to extremes in their environment, yet there is no consistent way to fully quantify and understand the risk when considering more than just meteorological variables...

The 3-dimensional potential vorticity structure and meridional overturning circulation of the Southern Ocean revealed using ARGO floats
15 December 2014 | Seminar

The meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the Southern Ocean is a fundamental component of the climate system.

Southern Hemisphere circulation changes at the Last Glacial Maximum
12 December 2014 | Seminar

Here we use a combination of present day satellite data and model simulations to test whether hypothesised northward shifts of the westerly winds and ocean fronts at the Last Glacial Maximum are...

Why is the Southern Ocean warming so rapidly?
10 December 2014 | Seminar

The ocean has absorbed more than 90% of the excess energy in the climate system over the past 50 years. Climate models estimate that up to 75% of this ocean heat uptake has occurred south of 30S...

Changes in means and extremes of surface temperatures, from centennial to daily timescales
3 December 2014 | Seminar

Characterizing how the magnitude and frequency of extreme climate events are changing, and will continue to change due to anthropogenic forcing of the climate system, is currently a major...

Stratocumulus radiative effect, multiple equilibria of the well-mixed boundary layer, and the transition to shallow-convective cumuli
1 December 2014 | Seminar

Low tropical clouds are known as a large source of uncertainty in climate projections. Over the subtropical eastern basins, stratocumulus clouds develop over cool waters.
