Here's a brief summary of some of the our Australian #climate extremes research since 2013, a year that has nothing to do with any particular events, government or ideology
Australia's then record hot 2012/2013 summer was made substantially more likely because of climate change agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.10…
Night time temperature increasing faster than day time temperature, a key fingerprint of climate change, though this feature is not well modelled agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/full/10.10…
The impact of climate change on record temperature in Australia were calculate in advance, so risks could be seen immediately after events occurred minerva-access.unimelb.edu.au/bitstream/hand…
Australia summer heatwaves in 2012/13 were also affected by climate change. Expect more in the future openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885…
The record hot Australia summer of 2012/13 could be mild or cool within just a few decades journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.117…
Frost occurrence in key agricultural areas showing complex patterns of change, including increase in frost in some months, with a climate change signal researchgate.net/profile/Andrea…
The off the charts record hot year of 2013 in Australia is virtually impossible in climate model simulations without greenhouse warming. openresearch-repository.anu.edu.au/bitstream/1885…
Temperature and precipitation extremes are already emerging from what we expect from natural climate variability alone iopscience.iop.org/article/10.108…
Hot temperature records being set in Australia in recent years at a rate of 12 x faster than any new cold records iopscience.iop.org/article/10.108…
Did climate change impact Queensland's flood years of 2010-2012? Maybe, but not as much as La Nina link.springer.com/article/10.100…
Even under the Paris limits of 1.5 and 2 degrees of warming, Australia's temperature extremes will increase agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.100…
Climate change was a key driver of the 2016 catastrophic Great Barrier Reef bleaching journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.117…
Limiting future warming to 1.5 instead of 2 degrees of warming will benefit many populations by limiting exposure to heat nature.com/articles/s4155…
Aspects of the Tasman Sea marine heatwaves of 2016/17 were impossible without climate change journals.ametsoc.org/doi/pdf/10.117…
Major greenhouse gas emitters can reduce their contributions to future extremes by limiting emissions now. Paris matters! agupubs.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.102…
Anthropogenic influences linked to increase in mean and extreme rainfall in northern Australia rmets.onlinelibrary.wiley.com/doi/pdf/10.100…
How temperatures will change in the future is still uncertain - will it become warmer, or warmer and more variable? sciencedirect.com/science/articl…
