The Southern Ocean is Earth’s climate ‘engine room’
A multi-camera shipboard monitoring system is giving University of Melbourne researchers much-needed measurements of wind, waves and ice in the Antarctic
Ocean waves and winds are getting higher and stronger
Using satellite measurements, University of Melbourne researchers show that ocean waves and the winds that generate them have increased over the last 30 years.
Exploring the birthplace of monster waves
A University of Melbourne researcher joined an Antarctic expedition to explore what rogue waves can tell us about the impact of global climate change.
Hiding in plain sight
Researchers have discovered methylmercury, a toxic form of mercury, in the ice and water around Antarctica, which could find its way into the food chain.
