Climate Impact Asia

Climate Impact Asia is a documentary series made in collaboration with CuriosityStream and StarHub, available as both a one-hour TV special and a four-part mini-documentary series, it looks at the critical impacts of our changing climate systems on one of the most vulnerable regions in the world – Southeast Asia. The key themes explored in this series include:

Volcanic Soundscape: How Seismic Sounds Can Reveal Eruption Secrets

When a volcano erupts in the darkness of night, or when it is blanketed by clouds, determining even the most basic information about the plume can be very difficult. Particularly for air safety, information like the time the eruption started, the height of the plume, and the eruption duration are crucial for determining what air spaces will be impacted.

How the Recent Eruptions in Indonesia were Reported to Aviation Authorities

Did you know that in the past six weeks six volcanoes in Indonesia erupted? These volcanoes are Semeru, Anak Krakatau, Merapi, Kerinci, Dukono, and Ibu. 

These recent eruptions are part of the usual volcanic bustle in Indonesia, impacting mostly the areas close to the volcanoes. While some of these activities were picked up all the way in Singapore, all were reported to aviation authorities.

How Rising Sea Levels in SE Asia could Impact Singapore

Channel NewsAsia’s documentary titled “Carbon Conundrum” investigates how carbon emissions contribute to rising global temperatures, which lead to rising sea levels and extreme weather events. In the documentary aired on television (channel 106 on Starhub) on 31 March 2020, Assistant Professor Aron Meltzner and his team provided insights on how rising sea levels in the southeast Asian region could impact Singapore.

We aim to quantify current and potential environmental impacts of dams on river basins in Southeast Asia, with a focus on Indonesia (Java and Sumatra), one of the most hazard-prone areas in the reg
