Great Barrier Reef Barrier reef attribution study: Data and methodology

We can now estimate how much more or less likely an extreme event has become due to human influences on the climate. How we can link some extreme weather to climate change

Global temperatures for February showed a disturbing and unprecedented upward spike. Are we facing a climate emergency? February's global temperature spike is a wake-up call.

ARCCSS research reveals when climate change started altering the influence of record hot years and summers in a way we can detect. We traced the fingerprint on record-breaking temperatures back to the 1930s

Global warming will increase rainfall in some of the world’s driest areas over land, with not only the wet getting wetter over land but the dry getting wetter as well. Global warming increases rain in world's driest areas
Global warming will increase rainfall, with the wet getting wetter and the dry getting wetter as well.
The last 16 record-breaking hot years globally clearly show the influence of human caused climate change with the first signs appearing as far back as the 1930s. Human caused global warming detected in 1930s

Representation of precipitation in models limited by small scale processes
Small-scale processes in models, rather than the simulation of large-scale flow patterns,  is holding back progress in accurately simulating Australian precipitation.
CSIRO headquarters. Picture by David McClenaghan. CSIRO boss' failed logic over climate science could waste billions in taxes
The decision to downscale CSIRO’s ocean and atmospheric research will cost taxpayers and governments billions of dollars.
New research from Nick Herold and Lisa Alexander show precipitaton uncertainties in observational datasets are as large as those in climate models. Observed precipitation datasets no better than climate models

New research published in Nature has quantified the change in regional extremes in a world where global average temperatures have risen by 2°C. How a 2°C rise means even higher temperatures where we live
