Current AAPP Activities:

As Program Leader for the AAPP, Professor Bindoff will drive delivery of the AAPP’s research program, including alignment of the AAPP with the Australian Antarctic science program.

The core mission of the AAPP is to:

  • support research that aims to understand the role of the Antarctic region in the global climate system and the implications on marine ecosystems;
  • enable the AAPP to undertake collaborative science, research and innovation activities under the Australian Antarctic Science Strategic Plan and Australian Antarctic Strategy and 20 Year Action Plan; and
  • secure Antarctic science jobs in Hobart

Biography

Nathan Bindoff is a Professor of Physical Oceanography at the University of Tasmania at the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies, and is one of the world’s leading climate change scientists.

Professor Bindoff is a physical oceanographer, specialising in oceans and the earth’s climate system, with a focus on understanding the causes of change in the oceans. He has been a coordinating lead author for the Intergovernmental Panel for Climate Change (IPCC) three times, and contributed to the IPCC winning the Nobel Peace Prize in 2007, shared with Al Gore. He was part of the team that coined the phrase ‘Global warming is unequivocal’.

The IPCC reports provide the foundation science assessment for the negotiations of UN member countries in IPCC around, or example, the Kyoto Protocol (1995) and the Paris Agreement (2014).

Professor Bindoff has been involved with the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems Cooperative Research Centre (ACE CRC) from 1992 to 2019, and was the program leader of the Climate Futures program from 2008 to 2019. He has also been the Director of the Tasmanian Partnership for Advanced Computing, Chief Investigator in the ARC Centre of Excellence in Climate Extremes and the NESP Earth Systems Science and Climate Change Hub and Head of Oceans and Cryosphere here at IMAS from 2014 to 2018.

His research interests are primarily in understanding how the changing ocean can be used to infer changes in atmosphere and whether these changes can be attributed to rising greenhouse gases and for projecting future changes and its impacts on regional climates. He has been documenting the changing state of the global oceans with a focus on the Southern Ocean and found a new climatically important ocean mode. Most recently his team has been using ocean salinity to track rainfall over Australia.  This work gives confidence for projecting the future climate (including extreme weather over Australia and its impacts), https://www.utas.edu.au/sciences-engineering/research/climate-futures. These global changes have been attributed to human influence on the composition of the atmosphere.
