State of the Climate 2020: Five things you need to know
We’ve pulled out five of the top things to know about the state of Australia’s climate, all from the State of the Climate 2020 report.
Prepare for hotter days, says the State of the Climate 2020 report for Australia
A changing climate means parts of Australia will get hotter, some drier, others wetter and we can expect more extreme fire days.
Mt Resilience uses AR to help you prepare for disaster
To prepare people for more frequent and extreme weather events, our researchers teamed up with the ABC to embrace AR with Mt Resilience.
Earth may temporarily pass dangerous 1.5°C warming limit by 2024, major new report says
The report by the World Meteorological Organisation shows that with large and rapid emissions cuts, we can still avoid the most severe climate change. But worryingly, we also have time to make it far worse.
Carbon dioxide levels over Australia rose even after COVID-19 forced global emissions down. Here’s why
Throughout the pandemic, atmospheric carbon dioxide (CO₂) levels continued to rise. Our scientists at the Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station explain why.
RV Investigator checks up on Hobart air quality during COVID-19 shutdown
COVID-19 has grounded RV Investigator until further notice. But scientists are using its advanced atmospheric instruments to analyse Hobart air quality.
Coronavirus is a ‘sliding doors’ moment. What we do now could change Earth’s trajectory
New research reveals which sectors of the global economy fuelled the emissions decline during COVID-19. We have a narrow window of time to make the change permanent.
Just how hot will it get this century? Latest climate models suggest it could be worse than we thought
The new values are a worrying outcome that no one wants, but one we must still grapple with.
Track to the future: climate change and your city
What will your city feel like in 50 years' time, in 2070? Climate predictions tell us that Melbourne will feel like northern parts of Adelaide.
Water you waiting for? Celebrating World Water Day
