  • Duration
  • Description

    In September 2019 the IPCC released its Special Report on the Oceans and Cryosphere in a Changing Climate (SROCC), which assesses physical processes and impacts of climate change on ocean, coastal, polar and mountain ecosystems.

    It also assesses consequences for human communities and options for people to adapt to climate-related changes for a more sustainable future. In this seminar we summarise and highlight the significance of key findings from this report for the oceans and polar regions, and for Australia.

    Professor Nathan Bindoff was a coordinating lead author for the oceans chapter of the report (Ch5), and a drafting author on the report’s Summary for Policy Makers (SPM).

    Dr Jess Melbourne-Thomas was a lead author on the report’s polar regions
