Understanding potential greenhouse gas impacts of the coal seam gas industry can help inform future decisions, including better understanding of methane.
Following decades of heavy trawling off the north-west shelf of Australia in the 1970s and 1980s, researchers are back to assess how the region has recovered, providing scientific advice to guide sustainable fishing practices both in Australia and internationally.
A paper published in Nature Climate Change has revealed the importance of regional differences in sea surface temperature variability in determining the global distribution of coral bleaching risk.
Crop yield models might not sound like traditional ag hardware but they’ve become a key tool in a modern farmer’s kit. They’re as good as they are accurate, and new research is focusing on making them more responsive to climate change.
There’s a high-tech tool increasingly available to farmers from Australia to Africa – remote sensing data from satellites. And they don’t even have to leave the paddock.
In a world first, a satellite-based algal bloom alert system has been developed for inland water bodies – a giant leap forward from individually testing each dam, river or lake across the countryside, and allowing for a much quicker response.
Australia will be able to guide the Earth observation satellite “NovaSAR” as it passes over our region – giving us a new level of control over the data we need to solve local problems.
Like it or not, climate change has introduced new levels of unpredictability into the business of producing and transporting goods to market.
