Microbes turn the heat up on groundwater cleanup

While investigating ways of cleaning up groundwater contamination, CSIRO researchers have discovered that micro-organisms which normally assist the remediation process can actually get too hot for their own good.

Great Artesian Basin Water Resource Assessment

CSIRO is reappraising the water resources of the Great Artesian Basin, which underlies about one-fifth of the Australian continent.

Understanding floodplain ecosystems

CSIRO's research to better understand and predict the response of floodplain ecosystems to environmental change will enable more effective environmental water regimes.

Estimating pollutant loads to the Great Barrier Reef

By estimating pollutant loads in the rivers that drain into the Great Barrier Reef lagoon we can monitor progress towards achieving targets for water quality improvement.
