Beating the eucalypt blues – new ways to model air quality
Australia is obliged to report on pollution levels. How we model these levels can be improved.
Saving the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is at risk from factors in and out of the water. Dr Christian Roth discusses what needs to change, and how, to save our reef.
Sifting for solutions: how sediment analysis is improving reef health
Cattle, cane, cropping, coral. That’s the balance the Queensland ecosystem has to strike to help reduce sediment and improve Great Barrier Reef health.
Australians link identity to the Great Barrier Reef
The Great Barrier Reef is one of the world’s iconic ecosystems, but how important is it to Australians? Very, new surveys reveal.
Energy Futures in a Town Like Alice
Today’s energy systems will not be sufficient in 2050, and remote Australian communities are likely to bear the brunt. Scenarios workshops held in Alice Springs are helping design energy solutions for the future.
Coral reef science enters the space age
New technology fitted into an aeroplane and flown over parts of the Great Barrier Reef will provide a more detailed survey of coral reef health than ever before and give a boost to global reef science.
Bushfires have a sting in the tail for Tasmania’s honey industry
Tasmania's bushfires have hurt not only the state's forests, but also the honey industry that depends on access to the region's unique trees.
The Great Barrier Reef faces a mixed future in acidifying oceans
Ocean acidification will hurt some parts of the Great Barrier Reef more than others.
What’s the scenario with global biodiversity?
Scenario modelling is a tool used by climate scientists to project what the future might look like based on different scenarios. Now, this same tool is being used to benefit the world's biodiversity and ecosystems.
