Monitoring team receives CSIRO’s top award in 2004
A team of mathematicians and environment scientists have won CSIRO's top award for a suite of environmental mapping tools that help fight salinity.
Meet the team creating maps that help address key environmental issues.
Maths + mining = innovation
CSIRO mathematician Dr Frank de Hoog explores the importance of collaboration between the industry and mathematicians in the September 2009 issue of Australian Mining Magazine.
Landscape monitoring and modelling
The research of the Landscape Monitoring and Modelling group is helping natural resource managers to make important water management decisions.
Increasing production rates
Mathematical modelling was one of several approaches which helped James Hardie to increase production rates for their reinforced cement building products.
Improving mobile telephone reception
CSIRO in conjunction with Telstra Research Laboratories has developed software to tune cellular mobile telephone networks using an advanced optimising technique to assign the best frequencies to base stations.
Automated image technologies enhance drug discovery
CSIRO’s automated image analysis technology can rapidly and accurately measure tiny changes in cells, to find safer drugs more quickly.
CSIRO is helping pharmaceutical companies with one of their most expensive, time-consuming tasks - identifying which chemical compounds to develop into new drugs.
