Understanding climate change impacts on mangoes in the Northern Territory
As temperatures increase in the Northern Territory, timing and triggers for important stages of the mango production cycle might be impacted. A team of climate researchers and horticulturalists is working together to understand what some of these changes may look like so the industry can prepare.
WA farmers staying ahead of the curve, despite 100-year rainfall decline
Despite a rainfall decrease in Western Australia’s wheatbelt between 1900 and 2016, which has shifted wheat yield potential southwest by an average of 70km, actual wheat yields have increased.
Climate mitigation: Science-backed solutions to reduce emissions
Science tells us that anthropogenic climate change is in effect. In order to limit the changes to our environments, economies and lifestyles, we must reduce greenhouse gas emissions from a number of sources. This is a huge task, so where should we concentrate efforts and what tools are at our disposal?
Capturing fugitive methane emissions
Three technologies that mitigate methane emissions, either by destroying the gas or capturing it, are gaining the attention of miners seeking to reduce their emissions.
Solar power and extreme weather in Australia
Over 2.2 million Australian homes and businesses now have a rooftop PV system. What does a summer of smoke, dust and hail mean for solar power generation in Australia?
Building resilience in the wake of a disaster
We Aussies like to think we’re resilient, but knowing what that looks like at a time of unprecedented challenge takes more than national pride – it takes good science.
Climate intel for the future
Climate modelling increases our understanding of the impacts of climate change including risk of fire, flood and cyclones. But can we rely on climate projections to manage future risk?
Climate change and extreme events – quantifying the changing odds
The field of climate change event attribution research has emerged recently and can provide new insights into Australian climate extremes.
