Dr Stan Robert: a pioneer in gene discovery

Dr Stan Robert brings his diverse experience in genetics research to the leadership of the Environmental Genomics Team at CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research.

Dr Susan Blackburn: passionate about microalgae

Dr Susan Blackburn is recognised internationally for her research and expertise in microalgal diversity, life cycles, ecophysiology, population dynamics, harmful algal blooms, culturing, and bioapplications.

Deep-sea sharks wired for sound

Deep-sea sharks have been tagged and tracked and their habitats precisely mapped in world-first research to test the conservation value of areas closed to commercial fishing.

New approach to sustain 'forage' fishing

Reduced catches of small oceanic ‘forage’ fish like sardines and anchovies may be required in some ocean areas in order to protect the larger predators that rely on these species for food.

Ecological risk assessment (ERA): a method for ensuring the health of marine fisheries

More than 30 Australian fisheries and sub-fisheries have been assessed for their ecological impact in research, led by scientists from the CSIRO Wealth from Oceans National Research Flagship.

Dr Chris Wilcox: guiding marine resource management

Dr Chris Wilcox leads research on the biological-oceanographic interactions, dispersal and population dynamics of pelagic species.

Climate change driven pressures on resource availability and food and energy security: implications for national security

This PDF summarises climate change driven pressures on resource availability; food and energy security; and implications for national security (September 2011, 59 pages)

Dr Tony Smith AM: leading ecosystem based management research

Dr Tony Smith brings a wealth of experience in fisheries and marine resource assessment and modelling to the leadership of CSIRO research on ecosystem based management.

Dr Lindsay Pender: Jack of all Trades

Dr Lindsay Pender was initially a solid state physicist and is now a marine research veteran helping to build the nation’s next marine research vessel.

The Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station in north-west Tasmania supplies vital information about changes to the atmospheric composition of the Southern Hemisphere. The Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station supplies vital information about changes our Southern Hemisphere air.

CMAR Locations

CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research Locations around Australia.

Dr Ying-Ping Wang: land surface modelling

Dr Ying-Ping Wang is working to understand the interactions between land surface and atmosphere and quantify the biophysical and biogeochemical effects of land use and land use change by humans on climate and climate change.

Dr Trevor McDougall: ocean mixing and climate

Dr Trevor McDougall's research is concentrated on fundamental issues in the field of ocean mixing and particularly how the known conservation equations should be properly averaged and included in ocean models.

Dr Tom Beer: expert on biofuels for low emission transport

Dr Tom Beer is an expert on environmental risk management, including greenhouse gas and air quality and their application to transport and health. Dr Beer leads Biofuels research at the Energy Transformed Flagship.

Dr Susan Wijffels: observing and understanding the world's oceans

Dr Susan Wijffels aims to quantify and understand the role of the ocean in climate, key aspects of the large-scale ocean circulation and global ocean change.

Mr Simon Allen: the science of observation for observational science

Mr Simon Allen leads an area within CSIRO that is developing observational and marine modelling systems to enable better understanding of our coastal environment.

Monitoring Asia-Pacific disasters from space

The concept of Sentinel Asia is to provide online information from Earth observation satellites in ‘near real-time’ through a network of webGIS services such as the Australian Sentinel Hotspots system. (0.31 secs)
