Pipelines into the deep

Subsea or underwater pipelines carry oil and gas from drilling platforms to coastal processing centres. The CSIRO Subsea Pipeline Cluster worked closely with industry and universities to improve the safety of subsea exploration, mining and transport in Australian waters.

Coastal Collaboration Cluster: meeting coastal challenges

The Coastal Collaboration Cluster will help coastal communities maintain economic and social values while using ecosystems more sustainably.

Networks and partnerships building smarter coastal management

CSIRO conducts innovative research to help manage coasts, coastal waterways and catchments Australia-wide.

Fingerprints of climate change found on ocean currents (Podcast 21 Feb 2012)

Oceanographers have identified a series of ocean hotspots around the world generated by strengthening wind systems that have driven oceanic currents, including the East Australian Current, polewards beyond their known boundaries. (8:56)

Giant water wall discovered riding the ocean currents (Podcast 14 Mar 2012)

Deep-diving ocean 'gliders' have revealed a 200-metre tall, 40 kilometre wide wall of undiluted Bass Strait water travelling hundreds of kilometres to the Indian Ocean.

Scientists see seafloor with sonar (Podcast 20 Jun 2013)

Scientists are exploring new data processing technologies to handle vast streams of acoustic and video data being collected from the seafloor to better manage fisheries and monitor the environment.

Climate tug of war disrupting Australian atmospheric circulation patterns

Further evidence of climate change shifting atmospheric circulation in the southern Australian-New Zealand region has been identified in a new study.

What does the Great Barrier Reef mean to you?

What does the future hold for the Great Barrier Reef and what part will we play? In the most extensive social study to date, CSIRO is asking 5000 locals, visitors to the reef and businesses how they use, relate to and value the Great Barrier Reef.

Ocean renewable energy

CSIRO modelling predicts that wave energy could play a large part in Australia’s future energy mix. Ocean energy extraction is an emerging technology and research is required on the nature of the resource, technology, performance and understanding the wider impacts.

A world of ocean research awaits RV Investigator!

Just over a year ago construction of Australia’s Marine National Facility research vessel Investigator began with flat sheets of steel, and now the blue-water research vessel looks amazing.

The North West Shelf: a model system for multiple use management strategies

A large scale study with the Western Australian Government has produced a world first report on management strategies for marine ecosystems to achieve ecologically sustainable development.

Sun, sea and pollution (Podcast 30 May 2013)

In an effort to better understand the impacts of human activity on Australia’s coastal environments, scientists are using powerful computer models to investigate and predict the water quality in coastal bays, gulfs, harbours and river estuaries.

Predicting Australia's future marine environment with state of the art models

The drive to better understand the impacts of human activity on Australia’s coastal environments using computer modelling will bring together a team of international scientists in Hobart next week.

Marine forecasting on the horizon for Indian Ocean Rim

Indian Ocean nations will meet in Perth next week to discuss opportunities to develop regional ocean forecasting.

Flagship clusters

The National Research Flagships Program is one of the largest scientific initiatives ever mounted in Australia. Clusters, which are the main element of the Flagship Collaboration Fund offer opportunities for collaborations in areas of national importance.

Australia's Marine Ecological Indicators Reports

Research has identified a set of indicators of marine ecosystem health and identified pressures that threaten Australia's marine environment.

Changing wave heights projected as the atmosphere warms

Climate scientists studying the impact of changing wave behaviour on the world's coastlines are reporting a likely decrease in average wave heights across 25 per cent of the global ocean.

Future Reef MAP

Ocean acidification can have a detrimental effect on corals and other organisms that build healthy coral reef ecosystems. CSIRO, with Rio Tinto Alcan and the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, are collecting water sample along the Great Barrier Reef to better understand what impact ocean acidification may have on Australia's iconic Great Barrier Reef.

Maria Island joins international ocean monitoring network

A key facility in an international observing network to detect increasing ocean acidification is monitoring carbon cycling in the Tasman Sea from a site near Maria Island.

Acid test: monitoring ocean CO2 uptake (Podcast 16 Apr 2013)

A key facility in an international observing network to detect increasing ocean acidification is monitoring carbon cycling in the Tasman Sea from a site near Maria Island.

Building a bigger picture of the Bight

A unique Collaborative Research Science Program to improve understanding of the environmental, economic and social value of the Great Australian Bight was today announced by BP Developments Australia (BP), CSIRO and Marine Innovation Southern Australia (MISA).

Ore systems science to unlock Australia's hidden mineral wealth

Ore Systems research underpins CSIRO’s exploration geoscience, allowing the development and testing of models for the formation of large ore systems. This improves mineral exploration targeting at all stages, from area selection to drilling.

One fish, two fish, red fish, blue fish: CSIRO knows them all (Podcast 13 Mar 2013)

From identifying what's on the end of your fishing line, to finding out which fishes occur in your local waters, FishMap has the answers.

So many fish, one great map

From identifying what's on the end of your fishing line, to finding out which fishes occur in your local waters, FishMap has the answers.
