Ocean research capability
CSIRO’s Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship delivers practical science that enables governments, industries and communities to make informed decisions about the sustainable management of marine and coastal resources.
CSIRO’s Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship draws on the strength of multidisciplinary expert teams.
Partnering for impact
Through partnerships and collaborating with the world’s best, CSIRO’s Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship addresses Australia’s challenges where oceans and coasts play a central role.
Our resilient coastal Australia
The Wealth from Oceans Flagship is providing Australia's governments, industries and communities with the scientific knowledge, tools and approaches to make wise decisions about our uses of coastal environments.
Tackling marine debris
A three year survey will visit every corner of Australia to find out where and how marine debris is accumulating – and how we can protect against it.
Ecosystem Response to Catchment Processes stream
Ecosystem Response to Catchment Processes research provides the scientific underpinning for catchment management of diffuse pollution based on desired ecological outcomes, ecological process understanding and adaptive monitoring programs.
Let's talk about energy
Why are my electricity and gas bills rising? What are renewable energy sources? Where will Australia’s future energy supply come from?
Building a bigger picture of the Great Australian Bight
CSIRO, BP, the South Australian Research and Development Institute, University of Adelaide and Flinders University are unlocking the mysteries of the Great Australian Bight’s vast area of ocean and coast; a region which already shows an abundance of marine resources and wealth which can be realised for the benefit of all Australians.
Science into Society
The Science into Society Group applies social science expertise to understand human response to nationally-identified challenges, connecting stakeholders with the knowledge emerging from the latest scientific research. The Group has expertise across a broad range of social and natural sciences, and specialises in interdisciplinary research at the interface between science and society.
Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia
Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia provides the latest scientific knowledge as at 2011 on a series of climate change topics relevant to Australia and the world. It draws on peer-reviewed literature contributed to by thousands of researchers. Available as a free eBook.
Knowing our oceans, securing our future
By unlocking the secrets of ocean processes, ecosystems and resources, CSIRO is addressing national challenges in which oceans play a central role. (4 pages)
