A new thermometer for studying our past climate
By studying underwater mineral deposits from cave pools, University of Melbourne researchers have developed a new tool to understand our climate history.
The rapid climate changes of the last glacial period
Using climate records from stalagmites, new research led by University of Melbourne confirms climate changes between the tropics and the Arctic were synchronous
Australia’s mountains are still growing
University of Melbourne-led research shows the Eastern Highlands of Victoria have been growing at a rate of 76 metres every million years, and are still going.
What causes an ice age to end?
New University of Melbourne research is solving one of the enigmas in palaeoclimatology – to understand why an ice age ended, we need to know when it ended.
Human evolutionary history takes a rain check
By dating the rock in between the fossil layers in Africa’s 'Cradle of Humankind' University of Melbourne researchers are shedding new light on our evolution.
What the past can tell us about the future of climate change
The high temperatures of the Last Interglacial warmed our climate. Now a study with University of Melbourne finds out what the past can tell us about the future
