New satellite switches views of Earth’s water to high definition
The new Surface Water and Ocean Topography (SWOT) satellite will orbit across Australia as part of a game-changing mission to revolutionise how scientists observe Earth’s water.
Assessing the impacts of deep sea mining
CSIRO is leading a consortium of organisations to highlight any potential impacts of a deep-sea mining proposal.
What will it take to bring Australia’s lost coastal ecosystems back from the brink?
Australia's coastal and marine ecosystems have suffered death from a thousand cuts. But scientists say it’s possible to bring them back from the brink – if we act now.
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.
A predicted ocean
Predicting the ocean requires mind-boggling technology, from salty robotic drifters and pristine supercomputers. But when it comes to the crunch, what is the first step?
Helping fishers adapt to warming oceans
CSIRO research is helping Australian fisheries adapt to seas that are warming at a rate far greater than elsewhere around the globe.
Connectivity in scalloped hammerheads
Scalloped hammerheads occur in tropical and temperate oceans around the world, but are their populations connected? A new genetic study using whole genome methods has found out.
The old age story of bigeye tuna in the western Pacific
New methods for estimating fish ages show smaller but long-lived bigeye tuna are part of a sustainable fishery in the western Pacific Ocean.
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.
