Climate intel for the future
Climate modelling increases our understanding of the impacts of climate change including risk of fire, flood and cyclones. But can we rely on climate projections to manage future risk?
Fast moving fires and the science of prediction
The arsenal of tools to predict and alert the community of advancing fires is the product of close to 70 years of dedicated bushfire science.
Regional climate guides put data in the hands of farmers
BoM, CSIRO and FarmLink have combined expertise to develop climate guides for Australia’s 56 NRM regions.
How life on the land shaped an Australian climate leader
Dr Helen Cleugh is still motivated by lessons learned back on the family farm in central Otago. She's now leading CSIRO's Climate Science Centre.
Satellite images add to weight of evidence locating missing MH370
Satellite images taken two weeks after the disappearance of MH370 featured several man-made objects, potentially pointing to a more refined estimate of the location of the aircraft on the sea floor - and the un-anticipated value of satellites to society.
What debris and the Indian Ocean told drift modellers about MH370 search area
The search for missing Flight MH370 in the Indian Ocean turned to oceanography to see what the science of surface drift modelling could suggest about the latitude of the splash site. The CSIRO final report has been delivered with more confidence than before of the likely search site - after testing on a real Boeing 777 plane part.
Speeding up water planning using the cloud
CSIRO's new Water Cloud tool is set to disrupt time and resource-intensive water resource planning processes – and The World Bank has taken notice.
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.
