Satellites are giving us a commanding view of Earth’s carbon cycle
New satellite data show in unprecedented detail the flow of carbon dioxide into the atmosphere. We might soon have signatures of individual power stations.
Understanding background methane emissions to inform energy debate
Understanding potential greenhouse gas impacts of the coal seam gas industry can help inform future decisions, including better understanding of methane.
Trawling for insights about the North West shelf
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.
How to work out which coral reefs will bleach, and which might be spared
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.
Improving crop projections in a warmer world
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.
Putting satellite data into the hands of farmers
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.
Spotting algal blooms from space
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.
Collecting satellite data Australia wants: a new direction for Earth observation
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.
