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.
Hydrologist among leading women researchers
The first Women in Research Citations awards have been announced with one of CSIRO's water modelling researchers among the leading women scientists named.
A marine current affair
A free online modelling tool that simulates the movement of oil spills and fish spawning is attracting a surprising range of users.
Beating the eucalypt blues – new ways to model air quality
Australia is obliged to report on pollution levels. How we model these levels can be improved.
