Dealing with climate change: palaeoclimate research in Australia

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Palaeoclimate research relevant to marine systems in

    Australia includes the collection and analysis of: (a)

    shallow-water and deep-sea corals, which provide highresolution

    archives, (b) deep-sea sediment and ice cores,

    which span longer time scales, and (c) palaeoclimate

    modelling, which gives us insights into mechanisms,

    dynamics and thresholds underlying past climate

    states. Palaeoclimate research in Australia is mature

    and well recognised internationally. To further advance

    Australian palaeoclimate research, we must address

    major challenges that include insufficient research vessel

    access, insufficient targeted research funding, as well as

    the lack of a well funded national centre to coordinate

    research efforts (e.g. academic institution or ARC Centre

    of Excellence for Palaeoclimate Research).
