Predicting the climate of the 2020s
As the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. Decadal forecasting can provide an assessment of probabilities for the climate system over the next one to 10 years, important inside knowledge for industries affected by climate.
Turning the tides on historical sea level records is giving up valuable secrets
We're dusting off old tide records, some dating back to the late 19th century, in a project to digitise these old hard-copy records so the data they contain can be used to analyse how extreme sea levels in Australia have changed over time.
Playing tag with tuna in the Bight
Hundreds of southern bluefin tuna have been tagged to reveal more about their annual migration and feeding habits in the Great Australian Bight.
Global sustainability goals a challenge for Australia
New thinking is required if we are to achieve the future we signed up for with the UN sustainable development goals, a new study has found.
Reliable river flow forecasts put Australia on the front foot
As we head into summer, short-term and seasonal forecasts of how much water is coming down our rivers—or, indeed, how little—are more reliable than ever.
Looking to the future with climate projections
Climate projections not only show us what climate futures we can expect, but also help us plan for them.
What’s the scenario with global biodiversity?
Scenario modelling is a tool used by climate scientists to project what the future might look like based on different scenarios. Now, this same tool is being used to benefit the world's biodiversity and ecosystems.
Drawing the future of the Torres Strait Islands
The Torres Strait region faces potential pressures such as climate change, population growth, biosecurity and pollution risks, and the loss of traditional culture. Community members, leaders, government and scientists came together to find out how they could adapt to these pressures in a way that’s sustainable and equitable, and to identify what makes a community resilient.
