KMRP Lunch and Learn: Climate Change

KMRP Lunch and Learn sessions scheduled for 2017

Predicting biophysical response to climate change Lunch n Learn Sessions – WAMSI Kimberley Marine Research Program

When:  Tuesday, 29 August 2017, 12:00-1:00

Who: Dr Ming Feng (CSIRO)

As part of the WAMSI Kimberley Marine Research Program, supported by the Kimberley Science and Conservation Strategy, scientists from CSIRO have been using historical data and numerical modelling to investigate how sensitive the coastal marine waters off the Kimberley are to changes in ocean temperature, sea level, and shelf circulations that may be caused by human activity and natural climate drivers in the Indo-Pacific Ocean.

Dr. Ming Feng from CSIRO will give an overview of the sensitivity of coastal sea levels, ocean temperature and precipitation to climate variability such as the Pacific ENSO, with focus on climate drivers of the marine heatwaves off the coast. He will also discuss potential impacts of climate change on the physical environment off the Kimberley coast and recent regional downscaling model results that are relevant to the future management of the Kimberley environment.
