Preparing for Victoria’s water future in a warmer and drier climate
New research shows that Victoria’s climate is changing and with that comes the need to better understand how the water cycle is changing and how this will impact on water supplies.
A short history of agricultural chemical usage and development
Throughout human history, pests have greatly impacted agriculture and society through crop failure. In modern times, chemical solutions to the problem have been hit and miss.
Counting every drop: Measuring evaporation in dams
Australia is one of the sunniest places on the planet. That means we lose large volumes of water from our reservoirs through evaporation. Our scientists have created a way to measure evaporation rates with expert precision, helping to better manage water resources.
Buying time for the Barrier Reef – shading coral and controlling starfish show promise at large scale
Shading corals to reduce mass bleaching and expanding the control of coral-eating crown-of-thorns starfish—if socially acceptable and done on a large scale—could buy at least 10 to 20 years for the Great Barrier Reef, according to scientists who have for the first time modelled all of the world’s biggest marine ecosystem.
