Stay-at-home fish prefer reef life (Podcast 09 Jul 2009)
New research shows that some fish species in Western Australia's Ningaloo Marine Park spend most of their time close to home, staying on the reef rather than travelling significant distances, as was previously thought. (4:55)
Cracking down on cyber crime (Podcast 19 Feb 2008)
The internet has changed our lives, but its lack of security can make us easy prey for cyber criminals. In this podcast, you’ll discover how a new portable device by the CSIRO allows us to safely use any computer. (4:12)
Phenonet: wireless sensors in agriculture
The High Resolution Plant Phenomics Centre is using CSIRO-developed smart sensor nodes to record microclimate and plant data in the field in an effort to select new plant varieties suited to difficult growing conditions.
Broadband for Australia
CSIRO is developing technologies to connect people and machines with high speed broadband and enable them to access the wireless internet anytime, anywhere.
Creating a wireless world
CSIRO is working on enabling technologies for future mobile and wireless communications networks and developing next generation imaging and sensing systems.
CSIRO is developing improved communications systems and sensors for innovative medical and industrial applications.
New solutions to water management issues
We focus on finding new, integrated ways to manage our water supply and water resources issues. This includes land use change, salinity, climate change, groundwater extraction and drainage schemes.
Time series analysis of forest condition
Scientists from the CSIRO Remote Sensing group are using satellite images and time series analysis to measure changes in forest condition over time at several Australian sites.
Timeframes of basin evolution
This research focuses primarily on the application of inorganic geochemistry to problems in petroleum exploration, and to a lesser extent, field appraisal and production.
Improving marine management with TasMAN
The Tasmanian Marine Analysis Network (TasMAN) is demonstrating low cost monitoring technologies, improving understanding of coastal regions and enabling better informed environmental management.
