Heat stored in the western Pacific Ocean caused by an unprecedented strengthening of the equatorial trade winds appears to be largely responsible for the hiatus in surface warming Pacific trade winds stall global surface warming – for now
Heat stored in the western Pacific Ocean caused by an unprecedented strengthening of the equatorial trade winds appears to be largely responsible for the hiatus in surface warming observed over the past 13 years.
NCI is pleased to announce increased support for climate change and earth system science research Additional NCI funding boosts climate research
NCI is pleased to announce increased support for climate change and earth system science research, benefiting both the Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science, and the major agency partners of NCI, namely BoM and CSIRO.
Extreme weather events fuelled by unusually strong El Ninos are likely to double in number as our planet warms. Get used to heat waves: extreme El Nino events to double
Monday, January 20, 2014: Extreme weather events fuelled by unusually strong El Ninos, such as the 1983 heatwave that led to the Ash Wednesday bushfires in Australia, are likely to double in number as our planet warms.
Observations indicate that the oceans account for an overwhelming proportion (93%) of the heat taken up by the earth system over the past 50 years. Research brief: How eddies effect ocean heat uptake

Global average temperatures will rise at least 4°C by 2100 and potentially more than 8°C by 2200 if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced. Solution to cloud riddle reveals hotter future
Global average temperatures will rise at least 4°C by 2100 and potentially more than 8°C by 2200 if carbon dioxide emissions are not reduced according to new research published in Nature that shows our climate is more sensitive to carbon dioxide than most previous estimates.
A recent evaluation shows a good correlation between observed heatwaves and those generated on the 21-member Community Earth System Model. Research brief: CESM represents Australian heatwaves well
