At least one billion people worldwide would be needed to take part in a global clean-up to reduce plastic waste.
The world’s strongest ocean currents, which play key roles in fisheries and ocean ecosystems, will experience more intense marine heatwaves than the global average over coming decades, according to a paper by researchers from the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate Extremes at the University…
Researchers from The University of Western Australia have discovered that Australia’s biggest reef may act as a substantial carbon sink, containing the carbon equivalent of annual emissions from one million Australians while also removing the emissions of almost 100,000 Australians from the carbon cycle each…
The most advanced and comprehensive analysis of climate sensitivity yet undertaken has revealed with more confidence than ever before how sensitive the Earth’s climate is to carbon dioxide.
The annual mean global temperature is likely to be at least 1° Celsius above pre-industrial levels (1850-1900) in each of the coming five years (2020-2024) and there is a 20% chance that it will exceed 1.5°C in at least one year, according to new climate…
An international study led by Monash University scientists has found that the distance travelled by marine larvae is dictated by both biological and physical constraints – contradicting previous hypotheses based on biology or physics alone.
