Nicola Maher - ENSO change in climate projections: forced response or internal variability?
30 January 2018 | Seminar

There is little consensus in the literature as to how the El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) may change under future greenhouse gas warming, with climate models showing a large...

Edward Doddridge - The Southern Ocean response to strengthening westerly winds
11 December 2017 | Seminar

During the 20th century we observed a poleward shift and an increase in strength of the westerly winds over the Southern Ocean, which can be largely attributed to stratospheric...

Fleur Couvreaux - The West African Climate: boundary-layer regimes, onset of convection, clouds and heatwaves
29 November 2017 | Seminar

In this seminar, Fleur will give an overview of the work she has been doing with collaborators on different aspects of the West African Climate using the observations collected...

Casimir de Lavergne - Abyssal ocean overturning shaped by seafloor distribution
22 November 2017 | Seminar

The itinerary of dense waters from the surface high latitudes to the ocean abyss and back to the air-sea interface determines in large part the ocean’s ability to store carbon and heat on...

Dann Mitchell - Avoided heat-related mortality under targeted Paris Agreement scenarios
17 November 2017 | Seminar

The impact of extreme heat events on human health is amongst the most concerning consequences of climate change.

Mark Lawrence - Challenges and Approaches to meeting the Paris Agreement Goals
10 November 2017 | Seminar

The 2015 Paris Agreement set targets to limit “...the increase in the global average temperature to well below 2°C above pre‐industrial levels and to pursue efforts to limit the...

Fraser Lott - Event Attribution: Past, Present and Future
26 October 2017 | Seminar

Attribution of extreme events has come a long way in a short time. At the turn of the 21st century we still believed that climate change couldn't be seen in individual events.

Martin De Kauwe - Using CO2 manipulation experiments to improve models
25 October 2017 | Seminar

The response of terrestrial ecosystems to rising atmospheric CO2, particularly under nutrient-limited conditions, is a major uncertainty in Earth System models.

Bob Hallberg - Developing Parameterizations of Mesoscale Eddy Effects and Boundary Layer Mixing for Use in Global Ocean Models
18 October 2017 | Seminar

The oceans play a crucial role in regulating Earth’s climate.
