EIANZ Webinar – An update on climate change and its ecological impacts

  • This event has passed.



EIANZ invites you to attend an upcoming webinar presentation by David Karoly from the CSIRO Climate Science Centre, who will give an update on climate change and its ecological impacts.

The latest assessment of climate change science from the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change IPCC was released on Monday 9 August. Climate change is already affecting Australia and our ecosystems, as demonstrated by the Black Summer extremes of 2019-20. David will talk about how climate change has led to observed changes in temperatures, rainfall patterns and some extremes across Australia, as well as some observed ecological impacts. David will also talk about the future changes that are locked in.

Meet the Speaker:
