How is a changing climate changing the water cycle?

How is a changing climate changing the water cycle? by A/Prof Jan Zika, ACEAS Chief Investigator We need to understand how climate change is affecting the long-term patterns of rainfall and evaporation on Earth. Our new study, led by Dr Taimoor Sohail, an Associate Investigator with ACEAS, outlines a way to track the water cycle by […]

Unravelling the moving mysteries of Antarctica

Scientists working near a rocky outcrop in Antarctica

Unravelling the moving mysteries of Antarctica Scientists are exploring a new method to uncover details of the changes occurring in the mysterious landscapes of East Antarctica—changes that will affect the lives of hundreds of millions of people across the planet. Researchers from the newly-formed ARC Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS), based at […]

Study exposes role of sea ice in protecting Antarctic coast

Study exposes role of sea ice in protecting Antarctic coast A new method for detecting and monitoring change in the exposure of the Antarctic coastline to the dynamic Southern Ocean, due to changing sea-ice distribution, could improve environmental monitoring and modelling of Antarctic ice loss and sea level rise. For the first time, Dr Phil […]

Our objective is to help communities prepare for climate risks emerging from East Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. We will do this by integrating knowledge of the region’s ocean, atmosphere, cryosphere, and ecosystems. The evolution of the East Antarctic and the Southern Ocean affects most of the global population, exacerbating and mitigating climate change’s impacts […]

Antarctica and the Southern Ocean: insights from the 2022 IPCC WGII report

Antarctica and the Southern Ocean: insights from the 2022 IPCC WGII report The Australian Antarctic Program Partnership (AAPP) and the Australian Centre for Excellence in Antarctic Science (ACEAS) have released a report on IPCC WGII key findings for Antarctica and the Southern Ocean. Over time, greenhouse gas emissions have caused observable changes in Antarctica and the Southern […]

About

ABOUT The consequences of changes in the Antarctic, including sea-level rise, extreme weather events, alterations to rainfall patterns, and fisheries impacts, will be profoundly costly to Australia. However, the speed and scale of future change remains poorly understood. The Centre will combine new field data with innovative models to revolutionise predictions of the future of […]
