Ocean Tracks–dive in!
Dive with sharks and fish in lifelike animations and follow their paths using interactive maps based on CSIRO’s marine-tagging research.
East Australian Current on science watch
CSIRO oceanographers leave Brisbane this week on a 10-day, $2 million research voyage they believe will generate the most complete profile yet of one of Australia’s most influential environmental features, the East Australian Current.
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.
Growing nitrous oxide levels explained
Australian, Korean and US scientists have generated a 65-year record of Southern Hemisphere nitrous oxide measurements establishing a new benchmark against which to compare changes in the long-lived greenhouse gas that is also a major ozone-depleting substance.
