Researchers respond to the IPCC’s report that human activity is undeniably heating the planet.

The world’s leading climate scientists at the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change – IPCC, have warned that the prospect of limiting global warming to 1.5C will be out of reach within 12 years at current rates of greenhouse gas emissions. The latest 2021 report has indisputably confirmed that human activity is heating the planet, causing […]

Averting disaster with UNHaRMED software

It’s an unsettling prognosis. Driven by climate change, population growth and economic development, natural hazards —such as the recent bushfires in Australia and the US, heatwaves in Europe, and floods in Japan—will in coming years become an even bigger threat. They will occur more frequently and with greater intensity. One will ‘cascade’ into another more […]

Media Release: Our researchers featured in The Advertiser about the Kangaroo Island fires

As the smoke clears, scientists and engineers at the University of Adelaide are “firing debate” about how best to manage bushfire risk in an increasingly hostile climate. Fresh shoots are sprouting from blackened gums and grass trees are green after recent rain on Kangaroo Island, offering hope that life will rebound in time. Associate Professor […]

VIDEO: Research Tuesdays – Firing Debate

This has been a bushfire season without precedent. As the world looked on horrified, our country burned. More than 11 million hectares have been reduced to ash, over 30 lives lost, thousands of properties destroyed, and wildlife decimated. Now, as the smoke finally clears, the natural question is: what can, and should, we do differently […]
