Sun, sea and pollution (Podcast 30 May 2013)

In an effort to better understand the impacts of human activity on Australia’s coastal environments, scientists are using powerful computer models to investigate and predict the water quality in coastal bays, gulfs, harbours and river estuaries.

CSIRO’s response to second volume of IPCC report (Podcast 06 Apr 2007)

Dr Chris Mitchell discusses the second volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report published in Brussels, in this four-and-a half minute podcast. (4:29)

Alien invaders are on the march (Podcast 22 May 2009)

While the implications of climate change for biodiversity have been widely recognised, the insidious effect of invasive alien species (IAS) on global biodiversity stays under the radar. (4:50)

The wind, climate change and the Southern oceans (Podcast 18 Feb 2008)

We all know that the oceans are warming, especially in our polar regions. But what role does wind play in raising surface, or deeper, ocean temperatures? A 15 year study of water temperature profiles undertaken by CSIRO, French and US scientists is revealing some surprising answers. (5:46)

Gone fishing - assessing marine ecosystems (Podcast 31 Jul 2009)

A global study by an international team of authors into the status of marine fisheries and ecosystems was recently completed after two years of intense research. (5:38)

Blue mussels lead to barnacle free boats (Podcast 11 Dec 2009)

New methods to reduce the growth of plants and animals on surfaces immersed in water, such as ship hulls, are being developed by a team of scientists from CSIRO. (4:24)

Barrier Reef bleaching (Podcast 09 Mar 2007)

Dr Peter Turner discusses a new tool which provides daily updates of the risk of ‘coral bleaching’ in the Great Barrier Reef in this five minute podcast. (5:16)

Beneath the waves of an interactive ocean (Podcast 17 Jun 2011)

CSIRO has developed a science-meets-game-engine website that allows users to interact with lifelike, three-dimensional animations of fish in their underwater environment. The site offers stories of the animals and illustrates aspects of CSIRO's tagging research. (6:59)

Surf’s up: new technology to forecast waves and currents (Podcast 23 Sep 2009)

New research into a laptop-based software system capable of interpreting near shore waves from radar, and providing several-day wave and current forecasts, could soon be making our beaches safer and assisting the Royal Australian Navy with amphibious landings. (5:27)

The effect of climate and weather on our oceans (Podcast 20 Feb 2007)

Deep sea coral to reveal a history of climate change (Podcast 20 Jan 2009)

An American research vessel, the RV Thomas G. Thompson, has arrived back in Hobart after an expedition to collect deep-sea corals south of Tasmania. An un-manned deep-diving ‘Remotely Operated Vehicle’ (ROV) with a capacity to go as deep as 6000 metres was used to collect samples and data, and photograph and video areas of the ocean floor. (9:17)

Queensland floods muddy the waters on marine life survival (Podcast 24 Jan 2011)

The impact of recent floods in Queensland doesn’t stop when the flood waters reach the sea. Marine ecosystems that we rely on for food, livelihoods, recreation and environmental value are being affected by flood plumes depositing sediment, debris, potential toxins and freshwater into coastal areas.
