Seminar: Past climate variability in south-eastern Australia: progress and potential from sediment archives
“Records of past climate which span decades through millennia are crucial for establishing baseline climate variability to place modern and future change in context. Such records provide new insights into the drivers of long term regional climate change and help constrain the probability of climate extremes. Our understanding of long term climate variability stems from a range of […]
