Regional variations in sea temperature can make all the difference between a coral reef suffering major bleaching or surviving as a refuge for corals, new research shows.
A new study finds that even in best-case scenarios, the fishing communities most hurt by climate change are on small island nations such as Kiribati, the Solomon Islands and the Maldives.
In early 2016 reports appeared that vast swathes of mangroves had died in the Gulf of Carpentaria. It now appears heat and drought were to blame.
Western Australia's super-corals are adapted to high temperatures, but even they didn't escape the recent bleaching event unscathed.
Months after record breaking coral bleaching, research teams are taking stock of the damage on the Great Barrier Reef.
Global average sea level has risen by about 17 cm between 1900 and 2005, but we didn't know how much of that was due to us, until now.
The summer of 2015-2016 was the hottest on record for Australia's oceans.
