Climate sensitivity and global energy budget in CMIP5 models
14 November 2014 | Seminar

Climate sensitivity is a major uncertainty for climate change projections.

Modelling the Last Deglaciation: Are Climate Models too stable?
22 October 2014 | Seminar

Full complexity climate models, albeit at low resolution, are now capable of performing transient simulations through the whole of the last deglaciation, 21000 kyr BP to now.

Coastal observation from satellite altimetry ocean remote sensing: issues and challenges
17 October 2014 | Seminar

In recent years, the exploitation of satellite altimetry (measurement of sea surface height) has been extended to coastal zones because its potential can be seen in a wide range of coastal...

Chasing bubbles to improve our understanding of atmospheric convection
15 October 2014 | Seminar

The most popular conceptual model for atmospheric convection is the entraining plume. However, this is hard to justify from observations, laboratory experiments or cloud resolving models.

Improving Climate Model ENSO Validation with new Climate Pseudo-Proxies
9 October 2014 | Seminar

Oxygen isotope (delta-18O) records from tropical coral skeletons are widely used for reconstructing tropical climate variability, particularly the El Nino/Southern Oscillation (ENSO).

The ubiquitous ocean circulation
8 October 2014 | Seminar

Ocean currents are responsible for the long-range transport and dispersal of properties and material, shaping our climate and the environment in general.

Lost in transition: competing discourses and Australia's energy future (PhD exit seminar)
1 October 2014 | Seminar

This thesis critically examines Australia’s efforts to transform its electricity regime along more ecologically sustainable lines.

QSurge: Product Development for Real-time Storm Tide Risk Assessment in Emergency Management, Queensland
23 September 2014 | Seminar

Storm tide presents the greatest risk to life in tropical cyclone (TC) events along the coastline of Queensland.

Decadal to multi-decadal Southern Ocean sea-ice variability, triggered by spurious deep convection events in coupled climate models
17 September 2014 | Seminar

Present day coupled climate models are not able to simulate the observed sea-ice increase over the past decades in the Southern Ocean.

Sensitivities of the carbon cycle to adaptable phytoplankton and its feedback on the climate system
10 September 2014 | Seminar

Reconstructions of the atmospheric CO2 history reveal that less than half of the anthropogenic CO2 emissions remain in the atmosphere.
