There is evidence that human-induced climate change has played a significant role in Europe’s hottest year on record. 

Four new research studies suggest that Australia’s recent droughts and heat waves of record-breaking seasons of 2013 were virtually impossible without the influence of global warming. And at its most conservative, the evidence showed that the record hot year of 2013 was made 2000 times more likely by global warming.

Variations in high-altitude wind patterns expose particular parts of Europe, Asia and the US to different extreme weather conditions, a new study has shown.

Thermal imaging has revealed koalas cope with extreme heat by resting against cooler tree trunks.

The levels of Co2 forecast for 2050 has been shown to deplete the nutritional quality of major food crops, an international research team featuring academics from the University of Melbourne has determined.

Highly regarded environmentalist, Don Henry has been appointed as a Public Policy Fellow at the University of Melbourne.

A new international study has published the most comprehensive Southern Hemisphere reconstruction of past climate records, revealing a clearer climate picture of the globe’s temperature history than ever before.

Any Australian with a home computer and an internet connection can now power up a climate model and help scientists find the causes of record high temperatures and drought that hit Australia and New Zealand in 2013.

Global research opportunities will be available to the next generation of climate change and energy experts to tackle major environmental issues, with the launch today of a new graduate research college in Melbourne.

Researchers at the University of Melbourne have collected critical insights into wildlife species’ survival that could help future conservation efforts globally.
