Warming observed in the Australasian region between 1985-2014 is unusual in the context of the past 1000 years, a landmark study has reported.

Scientific study resubmitted.
An issue was identified in the manuscript "Evidence of unusual late 20th century warming from an Australasian temperature reconstruction spanning the last millennium" by Joelle Gergis, Raphael Neukom, Ailie Gallant and David Karoly, published in the Journal of Climate on 17 May 2012. The manuscript was re-submitted to the Journal of Climate and reviewed again. The authors have repeated the original analysis using three additional methods to assess the influence of different statistical techniques on the original results.  The revised manuscript is still under review by the Journal of Climate.

The original results have been reproduced by an independent team of scientists using three different analysis methods and the results were published in Nature Geosciences in April 2013 as part of an international study coordinated by the Past Global Changes (PAGES) Regional 2k initiative.


An international workshop to reconstruct climate change history in the Australasian region is being held this week at the University of Melbourne on Monday 31 May to Wednesday 2 June 2010
