AquaWatch: the ‘weather forecast for water quality’ that’s an Australian world first
Satellites and high-tech sensors are revolutionising the way water quality challenges will be monitored and responded to into the future.
Revolutionising environmental monitoring using eDNA
Environmental DNA (eDNA) is a game-changer for monitoring biodiversity. New Australian/New Zealand guidelines for working with eDNA will support end-users taking up this exciting technology.
Tapping into water monitoring with Vesi™ sensor technology
CSIRO’s automated real-time in-situ groundwater monitoring system Vesi™ has funding to dive into new territories to revolutionise the way industries and utilities can manage water quality.
Researchers trust their tools when it comes to looking after the Great Barrier Reef
Deteriorating water quality is one of the biggest threats to the Great Barrier Reef. Vital protection and recovery efforts are taking place in the catchments adjoining this national treasure's coastline.
State of the Environment report highlights pressures on our coasts and oceans
CSIRO researchers have again played a major role in the latest Australia State of the Environment report as lead authors on both the Marine and Coasts chapters. In a first, Indigenous knowledge and perspectives have been included, thanks to some of their work.
Indigenous authors front and centre of latest State of Environment Report
For the first time, the five-yearly State of the Environment Report includes an entire Indigenous-led theme, Indigenous co-lead authors on most chapters, and Indigenous-specific case studies.
A health check for our natural wealth
With the release of the latest scientific report card on the state of Australia’s environment, we look at the underpinning science tools that have enabled the assessment, and how they can support our environmental restoration efforts.
Using satellite data to unlock water quality knowledge
Data cubes built using decades of satellite images reveal how the quality of estuarine and coastal waters changes after weather events, and over time.
Monitoring our vast and varied coasts
Human advancement is testing the resilience of our coasts, from the molecular level to the planetary. CSIRO's technologies are helping manage our changing coasts.
