Professor Ian Simmonds
School of Earth Sciences, The University of Melbourne
Ian Simmond's main research interests include:
- Southern Ocean (Atmospheric changes, oceanic changes, Antarctic Circumpolar Wave)
- Arctic (Sea ice, cyclones, ocean currents, water masses, river inflow) Global warming (Greenhouse gases, climate change, carbon dioxide, methane)
- Road accidents and Weather (Motor vehicle accidents rain, traffic density, weekday_weekend effect)
- Isotopes in weather and climate studies (Physically-based interpretation of isotopes, ice cores, isotopes in precipitation)
- Antarctica (Sea ice, mass balance, ice core interpretation, katabatic flow) Rainfall variability (Australia, Southern annular mode, cyclones)
- Cyclones and tropical cyclones (Baroclinicity, CISK, hybrid systems, climate trends, extreme weather)
Web tools and Projects we developed
The live tracker of the Australian electricity market.
This website is based on a Nature Climate Change study that compares Nationally Determined Contributions with equitable national emissions trajectories in line with the five categories of equity outlined by the IPCC.
Run one of the most popular reduced-complexity climate carbon cycle models online. Used by IPCC, UNEP GAP reports and numerous scientific publications.
