Dealing with climate change through understanding past tropical ocean-atmosphere climate interactions and their impacts on marine ecosystems

Journal Article


Abstract


  • Australian scientists are world leaders in developing robust

    palaeo‑environmental reconstructions from coral archives, relevant for

    understanding Australian climate extremes. The key issues for advancing this

    field are the need for high-resolution marine paleoclimate records to place

    the present in the context of past natural climate and sea level change, and to

    understand the impact of those changes on marine ecosystems. We call for

    sustained investment in paleoclimate science, infrastructure, and personnel to

    advance these critical areas of research.
