International collaboration in environmental science

CSIRO works with industry leaders around the world to solve environmental challenges related to our changing world.

Investigator looking ship shape

Australia’s new Marine National Facility vessel will start looking ship shape as hundreds of tonnes of steel are lifted into place, to form part of the keel of RV Investigator.

Latest Southern Ocean research shows continuing deep ocean change

New research by teams of Australian and US scientists has found there has been a massive reduction in the amount of Antarctic Bottom Water found off the coast of Antarctica.

Biotechnology glossary

This page provides easy to understand definitions of common biotechnology words and terms.

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.

State of the Climate - 2012

This State of the Climate is the second paper produced by CSIRO and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. It provides a summary of observations of Australia’s climate and analysis of the factors that influence it.

Earth's water cycle intensifying with atmospheric warming

A clear change in salinity has been detected in the world’s oceans, signalling shifts and an acceleration in the global rainfall and evaporation cycle.

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.

CAF Working Paper 11: The Impact of Climate Change on the Climatology of Tropical Cyclones in the Australian Region

This 26 page report presents results from CSIRO’s Conformal Cubic Atmospheric Model (CCAM). An analysis of outputs from CCAM shows that the model is able to simulate the spatial characteristics of tropical cyclone (TC) occurrence in the Australian region.

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.

Developing sustainable fishery harvest strategies

Scientists from the Wealth from Oceans Flagship have contributed to the Harvest Strategy Policy and Guidelines for Commonwealth fisheries.

Diverse catches are better for fishery ecosystems, scientists find

Fishing for a 'balanced harvest' can achieve productive fisheries as well as environmental conservation, an international scientific team reports today in the journal 'Science'.

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.

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.

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)

The burning issue of wood heater pollution (Podcast 24 Aug 2011)

Emissions from domestic wood-fired heaters in southern Tasmania's Huon Valley dwarf emissions from forest regeneration burns, according to a new CSIRO study. (7:35)

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.
