Dr Andy Steven details the impressive technology CSIRO is using to lead the way in oceans and coasts observations and monitoring research.
The eReefs program monitors the Great Barrier Reef using satellite sensors high above the planet’s surface and from a unique marine observatory far below located in coastal waters of the Great Barrier Reef World Heritage Area.
While underwater drones, robots and satellites have a well-earned place in monitoring the state of our oceans and climate, we also look to ship-based measurements for first-rate data.
The next-gen of ocean robots are helping researchers understand one of the last, and greatest, frontiers.
A vast range of ocean moorings around Australia is uncovering the mysteries of what happens under the waves, gathering data on what the future holds.
As the saying goes, forewarned is forearmed. Decadal forecasting can provide an assessment of probabilities for the climate system over the next one to 10 years, important inside knowledge for industries affected by climate.
There is an imperative to take action to protect and restore the Great Barrier Reef, the question is how we go about it. A new initiative is engaging the community in those decisions.
Scientists take a close look at what’s behind low-oxygen levels under salmon farms in Tasmania’s Macquarie Harbour.
