How to bend the curve of future biodiversity loss
New research, published today in Nature, shows that it's possible to both feed the world and bend the curve on biodiversity loss.
Using today’s ocean observations to unlock tomorrow’s climate
As Australia comes to grips with the devastating COVID-19 global pandemic, it’s possible to forget that only six months ago […]
Understanding climate change impacts on mangoes in the Northern Territory
As temperatures increase in the Northern Territory, timing and triggers for important stages of the mango production cycle might be impacted. A team of climate researchers and horticulturalists is working together to understand what some of these changes may look like so the industry can prepare.
Global trade crucial to resilient food systems: lessons from African swine fever
Disease outbreaks, like extreme events can strike anywhere, at any time. Hot on the heels of severe bushfires in Australia over the summer, heat waves in India and Japan, and locust plagues in Eastern Africa, we have COVID-19. Another disease outbreak is looming large in the agriculture sector: African swine fever.
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.
