Issue 260 Groundwater edition
Australia's groundwater resources support communities, industries and the environment across the country. But there is increasing pressure on this resource. We need to ensure that the best available science is used to inform decision-making, and this science provides solid understanding of groundwater processes, timescales and impacts.
Real-time groundwater monitoring easy for SENSEI
World-first trials of CSIRO’s automated sensor system, SENSEI, are providing promising, real-time results to better monitor and manage groundwater impacts in mining operations
How analysing ancient waters helps secure our future
The launch of a new Australian noble gas facility helps us tackle groundwater issues in conjunction with government and industry.
How can we bring conservation into the innovation era?
It's business planning, for biodiversity. Dr Iadine Chades and co-authors call for scientists to use a 'lean startup' approach when trialling new technology.

Understanding impacts and relationships to better manage groundwater in Australia.
One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish: Species recognition software for sustainable fisheries
Technology adapted from the security industry is being taken to the oceans to monitor fishing operations, manage the seafood supply chain and ensure the sustainability of our fisheries.
Building trust in science and technology
CSIRO has surveyed Australia’s research and innovation system to understand its perspectives on the current state of the science-society relationship, and what it sees as priority areas for change.
Can water banking guard against a future ‘Day Zero’?
As the water count down continues to 'Day Zero' in regional centres in New South Wales and Queensland, how can science provide greater water security into the future?
