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...

Changes in means and extremes of surface temperatures, from centennial to daily timescales
3 December 2014 | Seminar

Characterizing how the magnitude and frequency of extreme climate events are changing, and will continue to change due to anthropogenic forcing of the climate system, is currently a major...

Stratocumulus radiative effect, multiple equilibria of the well-mixed boundary layer, and the transition to shallow-convective cumuli
1 December 2014 | Seminar

Low tropical clouds are known as a large source of uncertainty in climate projections. Over the subtropical eastern basins, stratocumulus clouds develop over cool waters.

Interactions between large-scale variability and precipitation in Australia (PhD exit seminar)
19 November 2014 | Seminar

Predicting regional precipitation is a notoriously complicated task and improvements are necessary to better understand precipitation variability.

Modelling the Last Deglaciation: Are Climate Models too stable?
22 October 2014 | Seminar

Full complexity climate models, albeit at low resolution, are now capable of performing transient simulations through the whole of the last deglaciation, 21000 kyr BP to now.

Coastal observation from satellite altimetry ocean remote sensing: issues and challenges
17 October 2014 | Seminar

In recent years, the exploitation of satellite altimetry (measurement of sea surface height) has been extended to coastal zones because its potential can be seen in a wide range of coastal...

Chasing bubbles to improve our understanding of atmospheric convection
15 October 2014 | Seminar

The most popular conceptual model for atmospheric convection is the entraining plume. However, this is hard to justify from observations, laboratory experiments or cloud resolving models.
