Science and Technology in Indonesian Disaster Management: Ten Years of Indonesia – Australia Collaboration »

1pm 4 April 2019

Indonesia is one of the most disaster prone countries due to its hazard profile and high population exposure.  Since 2008, the Australian and Indonesian governments have partnered to increase the use of science and technology in Indonesia to support decision making in disaster management. This talk will highlight...

Doors held ajar in storms: Insights into Atmospheric Planetary Science »

1pm 28 March 2019

Our spacecraft have taken us to visit and explore many stark and ancient landscapes in the solar system. At first glance, very little appears to have changed for billions of years, but if we look to the atmosphere we see a dynamism that belies active processes in the present era and that hints at changes at and...

Radiolarian-based Quaternary palaeoclimate reconstructions of the Sabrina Coast, East Antarctica »

12pm 27 March 2019

Understanding past Southern Ocean climate is important when predicting future climate scenarios. Siliceous radiolarian tests preserved in seafloor sediment can be used as proxies to investigate and reconstruct the timing of glacial/interglacial cycles and to estimate past sea-surface temperature. Sediment samples...

Lessons from the Sudbury impact structure for the Hadean Earth »

1pm 21 March 2019

We know little about the Hadean Earth but most agree that the entire inner Solar System was pummeled by impacting bolides. None of the terrestrial Hadean impact basins are preserved but by analogy with our neighbours, the Earth must have featured basins of up to thousands of kilometers across. Is there any hope of...

A Last Interglacial perspective on future rates of sea-level rise »

12pm 20 March 2019

Sea-level rise is among the greatest risks that arise from anthropogenic global climate change. It is receiving a lot of attention, among others in the IPCC reports, but major questions remain as to the potential contribution from the great continental ice sheets. In recent years, some modelling work has suggested...

What have we learned about Earth from space gravity missions? »

1pm 14 March 2019

In 2002 the Gravity Recovery and Climate Experiment (GRACE) mission was launched, with the specific aim of measuring Earth’s gravity field and its variation with time, with unprecedented accuracy. The mission was an outstanding success, with impacts in a broad range of disciplines including oceanography,...
