Space-borne Monitoring of the Earth’s Atmospheric Composition
9 February 2015 | Seminar

During the last decades atmospheric pollution increasingly spread out to regional and global scales and thus became a subject of concern, nationally and internationally.

Towards understanding seasonally modulated climate phenomena: The example of a combination mode of the warm pool annual cycle and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation
3 February 2015 | Seminar

Nonlinear atmospheric interactions between ENSO and the Western Pacific warm pool annual cycle generate a near-annual combination mode (C-mode) of wind variability, which explains a large fraction...

Weighing the evidence for and against more frequent extreme mid-latitude weather in response to Arctic warming
28 January 2015 | Seminar

The Arctic sea ice cover is becoming less extensive and thinner. Positive feedbacks associated with diminishing sea ice amplify surface warming in the Arctic region.

Dominant Frames in Legacy and Social Media Coverage of the IPCC Fifth Assessment Report
27 January 2015 | Seminar

The media are powerful agents that translate information across the science-policy interface, framing it for audiences.

Feeling the stress in Melbourne: Heat stress, dehydration, air pollution and pollen
20 January 2015 | Seminar

Humans are at risk from exposure to extremes in their environment, yet there is no consistent way to fully quantify and understand the risk when considering more than just meteorological variables...

The 3-dimensional potential vorticity structure and meridional overturning circulation of the Southern Ocean revealed using ARGO floats
15 December 2014 | Seminar

The meridional overturning circulation (MOC) of the Southern Ocean is a fundamental component of the climate system.

Southern Hemisphere circulation changes at the Last Glacial Maximum
12 December 2014 | Seminar

Here we use a combination of present day satellite data and model simulations to test whether hypothesised northward shifts of the westerly winds and ocean fronts at the Last Glacial Maximum are...

Why is the Southern Ocean warming so rapidly?
10 December 2014 | Seminar

The ocean has absorbed more than 90% of the excess energy in the climate system over the past 50 years. Climate models estimate that up to 75% of this ocean heat uptake has occurred south of 30S...

Everything You Always Wanted to Know About Bayesian Data Analysis (But Were Afraid to Ask): Lecture 2
8 December 2014 | Seminar

Hierarchical models and Bayesian inference are becoming more prevalent in the climate literature.
