Global Tropical Cyclone Activity and Climate Change: Current Trends and Prediction for the Future
13 March 2015 | Seminar

In the first decade of this century, the potential for large increases in the frequency and intensity of tropical cyclones across the globe became popular topics of investigation in both...

Downscaling hydro-climatic variables over Murray-Darling basin using a geostatistical approach

The great British summer: new modelling innovations point to heavier summer downpours
2 March 2015 | Seminar

Although, regional climate models can reasonably simulate UK winter rainfall extremes they are deficient in simulating summer rainfall which tends to fall in short, intense convective events with...

Patching the ozone hole: a climate perspective
18 February 2015 | Seminar

Since the discovery of the Antarctic ozone hole in the 1980s, extensive research has shown that manufactured chemicals, such as chlorofluorocarbons (CFCs), are the cause of ozone depletion in the...

Space-borne Monitoring of the Earth’s Atmospheric Composition
9 February 2015 | Seminar

During the last decades atmospheric pollution increasingly spread out to regional and global scales and thus became a subject of concern, nationally and internationally.

Towards understanding seasonally modulated climate phenomena: The example of a combination mode of the warm pool annual cycle and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation
3 February 2015 | Seminar

Nonlinear atmospheric interactions between ENSO and the Western Pacific warm pool annual cycle generate a near-annual combination mode (C-mode) of wind variability, which explains a large fraction...

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.

Dominant Frames in Legacy and Social Media Coverage of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report
27 January 2015 | Seminar

The media are powerful agents that translate information across the science-policy interface, framing it for audiences.
