Biography

Following his PhD in Physical Oceanography at the University of Sydney, and with a background in Applied Mathematics, Neil was awarded a postdoctoral fellowship in the Climatic Impacts Centre at Macquarie University, working with Professor Ann Henderson-Sellers. One year later Neil was appointed as Lecturer, and subsequently promoted to Senior Lecturer in Atmospheric Science at Macquarie University. In 2008, Neil moved to Hobart where he was appointed Associate Professor of Climatology and Climate Change in the School of Environmental Studies at the University of Tasmania, before transferring to the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies in 2011. Over the years, Neil has undertaken several visiting fellowships and/or collaborative visits with colleagues at various institutions including the National Center for Atmospheric Research (Boulder, Colorado, USA), Scripps Institution of Oceanography (USA), PROFC University of Concepcion (Chile), University of East Anglia (UK), National Oceanography Centre (UK) and the University of Exeter (UK). Neil is President of the International Commission on Climate of IAMAS/IUGG; Associate Editor of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Journal; and Fellow of the Australian Meteorological and Oceanographic Society (AMOS).  He has previously served as elected Chair of Sydney Centre of AMOS for three years, and USC/UTAS/GU Collaborative Research Leadership Fellow (Sustainability; University of Tasmania) and Visiting Professor at Macquarie University. He is an international participant in the Southwest Pacific Ocean Circulation and Climate Experiment (SPICE). He has been invited to give several plenary presentations, convened numerous symposia at international conferences, and served as Associate Editor for the prestigious Journal of Climate [2006-2008].

Research Themes

Neil's research aligns with two of the University's research themes: Marine, Antarctic and Maritime and Environment, Resources and Sustainability. His research includes the following:

Indo-Pacific Ocean, Climate Variability and Change

Among his research achievements, Neil provided the first published quantification of the multi-decadal warming in the southwest Tasman Sea, and its contribution to steric sea level rise; demonstrated the significant modulating effect of El Niño – Southern Oscillation and decadal variability throughout the southwest Pacific Ocean, that connects the East Australian Current and Tasman Front, and affects subtropical mode water formation; and discovered the importance of forced Rossby waves on seasonal variations in southwest Pacific upper ocean temperatures. Most recently, Neil has demonstrated the strong and significant link between changes in the large-scale South Pacific climate and winds, East Australian Current intensity and sea level at the coast in Sydney Harbour.

Neil has also led the development of simple ocean dynamic process models of the world's oceans with his group. Aside from numerous published papers that have been generated using these models, Neil has also incorporated these modelling tools into his teaching. Neil's commitment to bridging the nexus between research and teaching has led to research-led teaching papers built on student learning activities developed using one of his models.

Through a program of supervised postgraduate research projects, Neil and his team have demonstrated that planetary (Rossby) waves are critical to Pacific Ocean predictability at year-to-year to decadal time scales. Research comprises of: (a) observational analyses, using in situ and satellite remote sensed data; and (b) modelling studies, using hierarchical modelling approaches and experiments.

Neil's research group has made important contributions to our understanding of the importance of planetary waves in the presence of bottom topography using satellite observations; the mechanisms underpinning Pacific Ocean interannual dynamics; and interdecadal climate variability and predictability. This research activity has recently extended to the Indian Ocean.

Climate Risk, Predictability, Projections and Analysis of Extremes

Climate extremes are expected to have the greatest impact on the health and welfare of society – including outbreaks of vector-borne disease. With collaborative partners, Neil's interests and contributions include investigations of precipitation and temperature extremes in observations and climate models, and the relationship between climate and Ross River virus risk. Through his supervision of higher degree research projects, Neil and his team have also helped to develop several tropical cyclone seasonal forecasting statistical models.

Marine Social-Ecological Systems

Finally, through Neil's national leadership of Australia's Climate Change Adaptation Research Network for Marine Biodiversity and Resources, Neil and his collaborators have developed marine social-ecological systems approaches to address climate change adaptation and resilience issues.

Expertise

Neil uses his background in applied mathematics and physical oceanography, and his expertise in ocean and climate dynamics at seasonal to multi-centennial time scales, to better diagnose the important mechanisms underpinning climate variability and climate change. To reduce the uncertainties associated with human-induced (anthropogenic) climate change, the potential risks associated with abrupt climate change, and the likely changes in climatic extreme events, requires a strong understanding of natural climate variability on all time scales.Neil is one of Australia's original National Greenhouse Advisory Committee (NGAC) PhD scholars, and has been working in ocean and climate change science for 25 years. He has published extensively in the international literature on the ocean's role in climate, climate variability, climate extremes and climate change. Neil has also shown national leadership in developing thinking around marine climate change adaptation.

Collaboration

Neil is involved in several international projects, most notably the Climate Change Adaptation and Water Governance (CADWAGO) project: http://www.cadwago.net. International collaborative partner institutions include the University of Exeter (UK), National Oceanography Centre Southampton (UK), Beijing Normal University (China), and Universidad Nacional Heredia (Costa Rica). Nationally, Neil collaborates mainly with colleagues within the ARC Centre of Excellence for Climate System Science, CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere, the Bureau of Meteorology, and the UTAS-CSIRO Centre for Marine Socioecology.

Identifying historical marine heatwaves off eastern Tasmania (2016)$14,250
Description
This project will identify and characterize marine heatwaves from the historic record along the east coast of Tasmania. The historic record will be derived from daily three-dimensional ocean temperatures from the ETAS coastal ocean model. ETAS covers the eastern continental shelf of Tasmania and has a spatial resolution of approximately 2 km spanning the 1993-2015 period. The ETAS model was forced by historic ocean and atmosphere reanalyses and has been extensively validated against existing observations in the region (Oliver and Holbrook, in prep.). It therefore represents our best estimate of the ocean state off eastern Tasmania. This data provides an unprecedented high-resolution record of the marine climate variations off eastern Tasmania.

Climate change adaptation and water governance: reconciling food security, renewable energy and the provision of multiple ecosystem services (CADWAGO) (2013 - 2015)$1,500,000
Description
The aim of CADWAGO (Climate change adaptation and water governance: reconciling food security, renewable energy and the provision of multiple ecosystem services) is to address the global challenge of water security through enabling appropriate responses to the impacts of climate change on water resources. CADWAGO will promote systemic and adaptive transformations in water governance by developing knowledge to support conceptual, institutional and practice based innovations. It is by way of these transformations in governance that CADWAGO will address the kinds of multi-level multistakeholder collective action that will improve climate change adaptation responses, from a water security perspective. Through this approach both the livelihoods of communities and the ecosystem services that are dependent on water will be enhanced.

Effects of Climate Change on Temperate Benthic Assemblages on the Continental Shelf in Eastern Australia (2011 - 2014)$556,800
Description
Change in behaviour of the East Australian Current (EAC) underpins a rate of ocean warming in SE Australia 3.8 times the global average and declining nutrient levels. The proposed work will determine present patterns of physical parameters on the continental shelf in SE Australia, and predict changes in both the trend and variability of the temperature and nutrient signal on the shelf. These data will be combined with observations of benthic communities 0-200 m depth to, for the first time, develop bioclimate models to predict changes in these key habitats so important for major fisheries and as areas of high biodiversity. Unique data from experiments will enable testing the efficacy of current approaches to bioclimate prediction.
