Australia’s national bluewater research vessel, the RV Investigator, has left Hobart for the Southern Ocean to gather data that will help us understand the impacts of ocean-atmosphere interactions on climate processes.
The oceans surrounding Australia have warmed, with the greatest surface warming to the west and south of the continent: State of the Climate 2016.
The CSIRO and Bureau of Meteorology have just released the 2016 State of the Climate report.
Elephant seals tagged by IMOS have helped scientists to discover that fresh water from Antarctica’s melting ice shelves slows the production of powerful deep-water ocean currents responsible for regulating global temperatures.
A review of the Argo array recently published in Nature Climate Change considers the progress and provides an outline of how the programme is likely to change.
SOCAT version 3 brings together 14.5 million quality controlled, surface ocean fCO2 (fugacity of carbon dioxide) observations from 1957 to 2014 for the global oceans and coastal seas.
IMOS data from Argo floats and ocean gliders contributed to NOAA's State of the Climate report published last week.
Frontal eddies ('freddies') are small, short-lived, rapidly-rotating cyclonic (clockwise) eddies that form inshore of the main flow of the East Australian Current (EAC).
