Our team discovered clear changes in the distribution and strength of ocean eddies. These changes have never been detected before.
Expected effects of climate change on hailstorms vary markedly by region, says a new international review involving UNSW.
In any given year, there's a 1% chance of a 'once in a century' flood. But that doesn't mean they can't happen more than once in quick succession.
With more rain on the horizon in NSW and Queensland, a UNSW climate scientist answers our questions about whether we can expect more wet and cold from La Niña, and what’s in store for next summer.
Projections of rising sea levels this century are on the money when tested against satellite and tide-gauge observations, scientists find.
We know heatwaves and drought can turn bushfires into infernos, but the reasons why were poorly understood in science.
To fully understand droughts, we need to answer the question: where does Australia’s rainfall come from? The answer isn't simple.
New research has found the window of opportunity for hazard reduction burns won’t actually get smaller, but instead change seasons.
A research team has used coral records to reconstruct the variability of the Indian Ocean Dipole – a big player in the severe drought and record hot temperatures last year – over the last millennium.
A new study has reported the world will lose almost half of its valuable sandy beaches by 2100 as sea levels rise. But cutting our emissions could keep some intact.
