What causes southeast Australia's worst droughts?
Since 1995, a large region of Australia has been gripped by the most severe drought in living memory, the so-called ‘‘Big Dry’’. The ramifications for affected regions are dire, with acute waterExpand

Coupled Ocean–Atmosphere–Ice Response to Variations in the Southern Annular Mode
Abstract The coupled ocean–atmosphere–ice response to variations in the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is examined in the National Center for Atmospheric Research (NCAR) Community Coupled Climate ModelExpand

Projected Changes to the Southern Hemisphere Ocean and Sea Ice in the IPCC AR4 Climate Models
Abstract Fidelity and projected changes in the climate models, used for the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) Fourth Assessment Report (AR4), are assessed with regard to the SouthernExpand

Indian and Pacific Ocean Influences on Southeast Australian Drought and Soil Moisture
AbstractThe relative influences of Indian and Pacific Ocean modes of variability on Australian rainfall and soil moisture are investigated for seasonal, interannual, and decadal time scales. For theExpand

Multi-decadal projections of surface and interior pathways of the Fukushima Cesium-137 radioactive plume
Abstract Following the March 2011 Fukushima disaster, large amounts of water contaminated with radionuclides, including Cesium-137, were released into the Pacific Ocean. With a half-life of 30.1Expand

Climate Drift in the CMIP5 Models
AbstractClimate models often exhibit spurious long-term changes independent of either internal variability or changes to external forcing. Such changes, referred to as model “drift,” may distort theExpand

The Indo-Australian monsoon and its relationship to ENSO and IOD in reanalysis data and the CMIP3/CMIP5 simulations
A large spread exists in both Indian and Australian average monsoon rainfall and in their interannual variations diagnosed from various observational and reanalysis products. While the multi modelExpand

Constraining Wind Stress Products with Sea Surface Height Observations and Implications for Pacific Ocean Sea Level Trend Attribution
A number of global surface wind datasets are available that are commonly used to examine climate variability or trends and as boundary conditions for ocean circulation models. However, discrepanciesExpand

Coupled Ocean-Atmosphere Feedback in the Southern Annular Mode
Abstract Previous studies have demonstrated that while the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) is an intrinsic feature of the atmosphere, it projects strongly onto the ocean and sea ice properties andExpand
