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.
Conserving oceans of life (Podcast 08 Jun 2010)
In this vodcast we meet two Hobart based CSIRO research scientists working to conserve our oceans’ biodiversity, and a visiting scientist applying his expertise to an Atlantic salmon breeding program. (7:23)
Climate change threatening the Southern Ocean (Podcast 02 Dec 2009)
CSIRO scientists are observing changes in ocean temperatures, ocean chemistry and global sea levels. The impact of climate change on marine biodiversity is becoming more apparent. To reduce this impact, urgent action needs to be taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stabilise global warming. (7:54)
Sea level on the rise (Podcast 02 Feb 2007)
In this five-and-a-half-minute podcast, CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship's Dr John Church, discusses whether our climate is responding more quickly to rising carbon emissions than previously predicted. (5:28)
The wind, climate change and the Southern oceans (Podcast 18 Feb 2008)
We all know that the oceans are warming, especially in our polar regions. But what role does wind play in raising surface, or deeper, ocean temperatures? A 15 year study of water temperature profiles undertaken by CSIRO, French and US scientists is revealing some surprising answers. (5:46)
Deep sea coral to reveal a history of climate change (Podcast 20 Jan 2009)
An American research vessel, the RV Thomas G. Thompson, has arrived back in Hobart after an expedition to collect deep-sea corals south of Tasmania. An un-manned deep-diving ‘Remotely Operated Vehicle’ (ROV) with a capacity to go as deep as 6000 metres was used to collect samples and data, and photograph and video areas of the ocean floor. (9:17)
