Current changes in the ocean around Antarctica may lead to an abrupt 3-4 metre rise in global sea level. Changing Antarctic waters could trigger steep rise in sea levels
Current changes in the ocean around Antarctica are disturbingly close to conditions 14,000 years ago that new research shows may have led to the rapid melting of Antarctic ice and an abrupt 3-4 metre rise in global sea level.
New research reveals that pauses in global average temperatures may be a thing of the past by 2030, until the Earth's temperature has stabilised. Climate change set to overpower future warming pauses
New research reveals that pauses in global average temperatures may be a thing of the past by 2030, until the Earth's temperature has stabilised.
Australia's hottest year on record in 2013 was virtually impossible without the influence of human-caused global warming Climate detectives reveal handprint of human-caused climate change in Australia
Australia's hottest year on record in 2013 was virtually impossible without the influence of human-caused global warming.
Prof Andy Pitman and Dr Lisa Alexander explain why accusations that the Bureau of Meteorology has fudged temperature data are wrong. No, the Bureau of Meteorology is not fiddling its weather data
Recently, the Bureau of Meteorology was accused of fudging its temperature data records to emphasise warming, in a series of articles in The Australian.
A new study has overturned the long held view that microbes in the world’s oceans are highly mobile and the same cells can be found anywhere across the planet. Microbes evolve faster than oceans can disperse them
A new study has overturned the long held view that microbes in the world’s oceans are highly mobile and the same cells can be found anywhere across the planet, unhindered by geographic boundaries.
Questions over Bureau of Meteorology data
The ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science does not collect primary data. We use data collected and quality controlled by agencies around the world.
It looks like it’s all over bar the shouting for the chance of this year bringing on a “super” El Niño. Or is it? Don't dismiss a 'super' El Nino just yet

Lisa Alexander and her Extremes team, along with Steve Sherwood have been nominated for a Eureka prize Four Centre researchers named finalists in Eureka awards
In an impressive coup for the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science, four of our researchers have been named as finalists in the Australian Museum’s Eureka Awards.
Heat waves in Australia are thought to have been responsible for more fatalities in Australia over the past two centuries (around 4000) than any other natural hazard. Research brief: The structure and evolution of heatwaves in SE Australia
