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?
Paving the way for climate change adaptation
In the face of climate change, how do we support terrestrial and oceanic ecosystems to adapt, while accelerating decision-making to create sustainable pathways for the future?
Climate influence from the other side of the world
In a paper published in Science, climate scientists say we need to look beyond our neighbouring oceans to understand changes several seasons ahead – to the Atlantic Ocean on the other side of the world.
Homeward Bound takes off
Three of our top scientists are on board the MV Ushuaia in Antarctica as part of an innovative leadership program for women in science.
Five seasons in Australia? Meet sprinter and sprummer

Two trillion light bulbs burning in our oceans
A network of floating data monitors across the world’s oceans has revealed a noticeable rise in temperature, particularly around Northern Australia, in as little as eight years – something that usually takes a lot longer to be recorded.
