What does the Indian Ocean have to say about tropical cyclones?
Australia’s tropical cyclone season began on November 1st and will run in till April of next year. The Bureau of Meteorology has predicted we will be impacted by 11 to 13 tropical storms.
But ocean temperatures are rising globally, and the BOM predicts the chances of more cyclones impacting Australia is 50 percent.
Think Sustainability spoke with Lance Leslie, Professor in the School of Mathematical and Physical Sciences at the University of Technology Sydney about what we should be expecting from this tropical cyclone season and how we might not be measuring the rising sea temperatures well enough.
