Introduction to Research centre

Home > Research centre

Why is the world's climate changing? What is the greenhouse effect? We keep hearing about carbon dioxide, hotter weather, rising sea levels and extreme weather events, but what does it all mean?

After using the Australian Greenhouse Calculator you may have questions such as these that you would like answered. In the Research centre you can explore and research many aspects of climate change and the greenhouse effect including what you can do as an individual.

The menu on the right-hand side of this screen allows you to select from a wide range of topics on climate change and the greenhouse effect. These topics will help to explain the issues involved.

The Research centre can be used in many ways – for research, talks and presentations. It can also be a springboard for further research.

A useful starting point is to view the animation Greenhouse.
