Speeding up science: CSIRO's CPU-GPU supercomputer
CSIRO's latest supercomputer cluster is among the world's first to combine traditional CPUs with more powerful graphics processing units or GPUs, providing a world class computational and simulation science facility to advance priority CSIRO science.
Climate questions: Understanding current climate change in a palaeoclimatic context
The Earth’s climate has varied naturally over hundreds of millions of years – why should we believe humans are causing current changes? Understanding past changes between glacial and interglacial periods helps us to understand how unusual the current warming is. For example, the linear warming trend over the past 50 years of 0.13 °C per decade is much more rapid than the rate of warming between ice ages and warm interglacial periods of around 0.01 °C per decade.
CSIRO has developed a collaborative environment allowing people in multiple locations to work together in real-time on documents, data and high resolution images.
Biomedical Materials and Devices research videos

Get out your scissors and glue; then get ready to build! Double Helix brings you a paper model of the largest spacecraft ever built, the International Space Station (ISS).
Climate questions: How reliable are climate models?
The ability of climate models to project future climate is often questioned. There will always be a range of uncertainty in climate projections. Climate models, which are based on the laws of physics and thoroughly tested, provide credible quantitative estimates of future climate change.
