Plankton Jesse Claggett Flickr Research brief: How phytoplankton will be affected by climate change
In the Southern Ocean, atmospheric warming associated to climate change is altering the depth at which surface waters are stirred, the so-called mixed-layer depth.
Perth Perth's cool response to heatwave a mystery
Perth's urban heat island responds differently to heatwaves compared to other Australian cities.
Soil emissions may be increasing the oxidising capacity and nitrogen oxide content of the lower atmosphere. Research brief: Soil emissions increase nitrogen oxide in lower atmosphere
Soil emissions may be increasing the oxidising capacity and nitrogen oxide content of the lower atmosphere around Melbourne.
A new study has found that an increase in average wind speeds as a result of global warming could lead to abrupt physical changes in the Southern Ocean with significant implications for climate change. Stronger winds could trigger rapid change in Southern Ocean

Stronger westerly winds in the Southern Ocean could be the cause of a sudden rise in atmospheric CO2 in a period of less than 100 years about 16,000 years ago. Stronger westerlies blow an ill wind for climate
Stronger westerly winds in the Southern Ocean could be the cause of a sudden rise in atmospheric CO2 in a period of less than 100 years about 16,000 years ago, according to a study published in
Global warming may be twice what climate models predict
Future global warming may eventually be twice as warm as projected by climate models under business-as-usual scenarios and even if the world meets the 2°C target sea levels may rise six metres or m
The richest countries are the least affected by 2°C change in global temperatures while poorer nations bear the heaviest burden. Global warming hits poorest nations hardest

A new paper by ARCCSS researchers reveals why climate models struggled to reproduce the strength of the trade winds. Research brief: Mean state biases reduce natural variability in climate models
A new paper published in Nature Climate Change by ARCCSS researchers reveals why climate models struggled to reproduce the strength of the trade winds.
ARCCSS researchers have taken a new approach to combining results from multiple climate models to test if it improves projections of our climate. Research brief: ARCCSS researchers improve confidence in regional climate model projections
