What Wye River can teach us about building for bushfires
The devastating bushfire that tore through Wye River in 2015 has shown us that resilience to bushfires is about more than just building regulations.
Antarctic research without breaking the ice
To obtain good scientific data about the Antarctic ice sheet and the impact of warming waters you need a ship that can stand those remote, wild and unforgiving waters.
Learning from 100 years of bushfire loss data
Historical data on bushfire losses reveals sobering insight about the human response to catastrophic bushfire conditions, and why our current approach is set to fail.
Savanna carbon emissions improved by dead reckoning
Managing savannas by burning has been good for limiting greenhouse gas emissions. Research now shows they're storing more carbon than previously thought.
Hard yakka field work underpins decisions for Northern Australia
Much of the hard work behind future decisions on development in Northern Australia has been done over the winter – getting hot and dirty in the field collecting the data and the detail that describe the country.
A spark of hope in predicting bushfire behaviour
The pressure is on to predict where bushfires will start, how fast they’ll spread and which path they’ll take. CSIRO's ‘Spark’ simulation toolkit could be a game-changer.
