111Harriet CMAR MedRelTsr
A miniscule marine creature caught during a recent Indian Ocean research voyage is believed to be the first of its kind identified in the Southern Hemisphere.
146Surveyor CMAR MedRelTsr
Australia's National Marine Research Facility, Southern Surveyor, sets sail from Sydney next month for northern Australian waters and the first leg of her most diverse ocean research program yet.
130prawnfishers CMAR MedRelTsr
Fishing crews have gathered information on more than 1000 sea snakes and hundreds of other species in the first year of a bycatch-monitoring study in the Northern Prawn Fishery.
129OceanStudy CMAR MedRelTsr
A five-nation oceanographic team is taking the first steps in a $3.6 million project studying the major flow of ocean currents between Asia and Australia and how they influence rainfall across Southern Australia and Indonesia.
Hobart, Tas (Hobart laboratories)
CSIRO's Hobart laboratories provide research into sustainable marine resources and industries, climate, weather and ocean prediction, integrated coastal and oceans management as well as health and sustainable energy use.
33Air CMAR MedRelTsr
Australia's air pollution death toll is higher than fatalities from road accidents. So air quality scientists, medical researchers and Government agency representatives from around Australia are meeting in Melbourne this week to tackle the health problems associated with air pollution.
Case Study - The Tasman Sea: Australia's ocean hotspot
Once a month, and every year since 1945, scientists and technicians from Australia’s national research agency, CSIRO, have ventured by small boat to a point north of Maria Island on Tasmania's east coast to measure the ocean’s vital statistics.

Future Research Vessel: Draft General Arrangement
A Preliminary General Arrangement of the Research Vessel – Investigator. These drawings are indicative and will be subject to amendment throughout the design phase of the Future Research Vessel Project. (17 pages)
This case study examines the potential impacts of climate change on the Tasmanian rock lobster fishery, and identifies several options and opportunities for adaptation.
This information resource developed by CSIRO and the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC provides detail and background information on the latest science and research into sea level rise.
Looking for climate clues in the Southern Ocean
Scientists have left on a research voyage to the Southern Ocean to investigate how the Southern Ocean is changing and to discover what impact those changes will have on climate, sea level, and marine life.
59Prawns CMAR MedRelTsr
Scientists are analysing the abundance and distribution of thousands of prawns caught at 300 sites across the Gulf of Carpentaria to help fine-tune the largest monitoring program designed for an Australian fishery.
63Sealevels CMAR MedRelTsr
Sea-level rise and changes to cyclone intensity under enhanced greenhouse conditions would pose a considerable increase in risk to coastal property and infrastructure, according to a recent CSIRO study.
51Carbon CMAR MedRelTsr
CSIRO has measured above average growth in carbon dioxide levels in the global atmosphere, despite global attempts to reduce these emissions. The source of the increase is most likely from the burning of fossil fuels - coal, oil and gas.
45Leeuwin CMAR MedRelTsr
One of Australia's most influential natural features, the Leeuwin Current has been confirmed as the longest continuous coastal current system in the world.
50WindTunnel CMAR MedRelTsr
Students at Lake Ginninderra College in the ACT are the first in Australia to have access to their own wind tunnel to conduct scientific experiments on fluid dynamics and atmospheric conditions.
65Geneprobe CMAR MedRelTsr
CSIRO marine scientists have developed a technique that gives new hope in the battle to stop the spread of aquatic pests.
Carbon Budget 2010
Global carbon dioxide emissions increased by a record 5.9 per cent in 2010 following the 2008-2009 Global Financial Crisis, according to scientists working with the Global Carbon Project.
