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.

Flight Path to Sustainable Aviation Fuels
With emissions reduction and fuel security in mind, Australia and New Zealand’s main aviation players approached CSIRO Energy Transformed Flagship to work collaboratively on a study that would help plan a sustainable future for aviation fuels.
Super-fast chips boost telescope’s power
Recent changes to CSIRO’s Australia Telescope have made one of the world’s most advanced radio telescopes even more powerful.
CSIRO has boosted the power of its Australia Telescope through chips made of an advanced semiconductor material, indium phosphide.
Superconducting devices and systems
CSIRO has one of the world’s biggest groups of superconductivity scientists working on detectors for applications in geophysics, physical security, food safety and oceanography and in the frontier science of quantum engineering.
The paddock-to-plate logistics in the food sector are complex, costly and may be eroding the value of Australia’s A$100 billion food industry by as much as 35 per cent. The Food Futures Flagship project State of Logistics in Australia is looking at ways to smooth the bumps in the road to market for Australia’s agrifoods sector.
Monitoring water quality in South-East Queensland
CSIRO is helping to develop water quality monitoring programs for the bays, estuaries and freshwaters of South-East Queensland.
CSIRO worked with government, industry, universities and the community to develop a water quality management strategy for the bays, estuaries and freshwaters of South-East Queensland.
Siropulse: high-resolution sub-surface radar
Siropulse is a light, portable, high-resolution radar system capable of probing distances ranging from less than one centimetre to many metres and picking up metallic and non-metallic objects and voids.
Harvest forecasting solution for Simplot’s pea production
Dr Andrew Higgins, in collaboration with a large food processing factory in Tasmania, Simplot, developed and implemented a database application and model that dramatically improves the factory's ability to plan optimal harvest and transport times.
