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).
Mr Damian Thomson’s core expertise lies in studying benthic ecology and the processes influencing the life history of organisms living on or near the sea floor.

Preparing for marine incidents [external link]
CSIRO has joined forces with the Australian Maritime Safety Authority (AMSA) to provide support for maritime environmental incidents, like oil spills and shipping accidents.
Our expertise and experience in maritime and marine science will serve AMSA’s need for immediate advice during an incident response to ensure timely decisions can be made that help minimise impact, and monitor Australia’s marine environment against oil spills, pollution or damage from a vessel collision or grounding.
