Study reveals how climate patterns contribute to coral bleaching in the Great Barrier Reef

A new study finds a significant impact of the Madden-Julian Oscillation (MJO) and El Niño Southern Oscillation (ENSO) on coral bleaching events in the Great Barrier Reef (GBR). The GBR, covering almost 350,000 square kilometres along Australia's northeastern coast, is the world's largest coral ecosystem. Renowned for its biodiversity, cultural significance, and economic value, it contributes around $6.4 billion annually to the Australian economy. However, it faces serious threats from increasing ocean temperatures due to climate change. A new paper, Combined Role of the MJO and ENSO in Shaping Extreme Warming Patterns and Coral Bleaching Risk in the Great Barrier…

Off balance: New studies unravel the climate pattern impacts on the Antarctic Ice Sheet

The Southern Annular Mode andEl Niño-Southern Oscillation are causing large year-to-year variations in Antarctic snow accumulation and surface melt. Findings from two new research papers are supporting efforts to predict how Antarctica will respond to future climate change. Change in the Antarctic creates ripple effects all over the planet, including sea level rise and shifts in weather patterns. New Monash research has untangled the influence of regional climate drivers, including the Southern Annular Mode (SAM) and the El Niño-Southern Oscillation (El Niño), on the Antarctic Ice Sheet. Snow accumulation and surface melting are two important processes that are key to…
