Comments on: Severe cyclone poised to mash up the GBR and northern Queensland http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6309 Science, climate change, coral reefs and the environment Mon, 31 Mar 2014 21:57:00 +0000 hourly 1 http://wordpress.org/?v=3.8.24 By: Jon Brodie http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6309#comment-1286 Mon, 07 Feb 2011 04:01:32 +0000 http://www.climateshifts.org/?p=6309#comment-1286 I guess the big questions will be whether climate change will increase the intensity of La Nina, increase the intensity of cyclones (but maybe not the frequency), increase the period and intensity of rainfall events in Queensland and hence, as for this wet season, increase the effects of runoff on the GBR. This wet we’ve had very early (from September) and prolonged runoff events in the Wet Tropics, massive and continuing (wet season has a few months to go yet)runoff in the southern half of the GBR, now cyclone cat 5 physical damage to the reef (severity yet to be assessed)and now more flooding in the wet tropics, Burdekin and Fitzroy from the Cyclone Anthony and Yasi rainfall. The nature of the runoff has changed of course from pre 1800 runoff with the vegetation changes on the catchments, mining, cropping and urban development.

Although ocean warming is likely to increase cyclone strength and frequency, I wouldn’t attribute a single weather event to climate change. That said, the presence of large storms in the past doesn’t mean climate change will not lead to more of them in the future.
