CSIRO, the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation, is Australia's national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.
Large-scale, long-term, multidisciplinary science to address Australia's major national challenges and opportunities.
CSIRO expertise is organised into 11 research areas
CSIRO manages national facilities and collections that are opened to researchers around Australia and overseas.
Estimating the sustainable yields of Australia’s major water systems.
Understanding climate change and variability in south-eastern Australia.
Finding the most effective ways to help local communities deal with the impacts of climate change.
Informing land management decisions by valuing the ecosystem services that tropical rivers provide.
- The Water for a Healthy Country Flagship is investigating how a changing climate and land use is impacting on Australia's future water security and developing scientific tools and knowledge to help water managers plan accordingly.
- This research identifies and develops tools to assess Australia' groundwater resource and to facilitate better groundwater and surface water management.
- This stream develops science and technology to underpin Australia’s next generation of services in flood and river flow forecasting.
- This research stream is developing modelling tools, monitoring methods and integrated information systems to improve understanding of surface water resources in the face of changing land use.
Rural water resources in Australia face a major transformation in coming decades, with increased pressure on a limited resource demanding more sophisticated management.
CSIRO is committed to providing solutions that increase regional water security while meeting social, environmental and critical human needs.
