Farming Ahead: CSIRO and related articles from 2006

Farming Ahead magazine regularly features CSIRO’s research for the agricultural sector. This is a list of CSIRO articles published in the magazine throughout 2006.

Dr Éva Plagányi: leading model research for marine management

Dr Éva Plagányi leads research on models to support the sustainable management of marine systems. She has expertise in stock assessment modelling, ecosystem modelling and management strategy evaluation.

Energy from oil and gas overview

CSIRO is researching methods to improve the efficiency of power generation from fossil fuels. Fossil fuels allow us to drive our cars, turn our lights on and take a hot shower. CSIRO is researching how to efficiently use these valuable fuels while reducing harmful emissions.

Environmental and agricultural informatics: strength in numbers

Major issues such as climate change, sustainable fisheries and urban water quality benefit from CSIRO's statistical and mathematical expertise. Our methods are being adopted and, in some cases, mandated by state and federal governments, and international agencies.

Science for our environment

CSIRO and its partners seek to develop solutions to Australia’s environmental challenges. CSIRO is committed to the challenge of using science, combined with community and industry knowledge, to make sure that our ecosystems are sustainable for the long term prosperity of Australia.

Dr Beth Fulton: 2007 Life Scientist of the Year

Dr Beth Fulton was awarded the 2007 Science Minister's Prize for Life Scientist of the Year in recognition of her impact on regional marine planning, fisheries management, and understanding climate change.

Dr David Dewhurst: leading multi-disciplinary research in petroleum geoscience

Dr David Dewhurst manages CSIRO’s capability in petroleum geoscience and is responsible for developing new science directions to support the petroleum industry. He has expertise in geomechanics, shale behaviour and rock properties.

Dr David Griffin: observing and forecasting our oceans

Dr David Griffin is a physical oceanographer specialising in phenomena including eddies, fronts and boundary currents such as the East Australian Current.

Definitive guide to Sharks and Rays of Australia

More than 320 shark, ray and chimaerid species are described and illustrated in the new edition of Sharks and Rays of Australia.

Deep-sea corals provide key to climate change

Corals taken from depths of 1 000 metres are signalling a previously unknown pattern of temperate and oceanic climate change that has occurred over the past 200 years.

Sounding out life in the ocean

Commercial fishers are helping marine scientists to map and monitor food supplies available to top order predators in the oceans around Australia.

Carbon dioxide, the ocean and climate change

The world’s oceans absorb more than a quarter of the carbon dioxide generated by human activities, however as they do so, their chemistry changes. This could have serious consequences for marine life

Fisheries in a future ocean: impacts of climate change

As the oceans change in response to our changing climate, ocean plant and animal life will also be affected. This will have an impact on fisheries.

Marine life and our changing climate

As our oceans warm, the ranges of marine species are likely to change as they adapt to the changing conditions. Nutrient availability and ocean acidification will also affect marine species as our climate changes.

Clever environmental management

CSIRO’s information and communication technologies and mathematical and statistical services are providing the information about complex natural systems needed to better manage our environment.

Gliders – a new window into our coastal seas

An autonomous underwater glider has just completed a successful 26-day monitoring of Storm Bay in southern Tasmania for CSIRO's Wealth from Oceans Flagship, covering a total distance of 490 km.

Dr Brad Angel: Environmental Chemist and Ecotoxicologist

Dr Brad Angel's research is investigating the concentrations and impacts of metal and nanoparticulate contaminants in aquatic environments.

BLUElink>: operational ocean forecasting for Australia

Discover how the BLUElink> ocean forecasting project will benefit a wide range of marine users in this video (5:30).

Biotechnology solutions for industry

CSIRO's biotechnology research delivers biotechnology applications for human health, agriculture, the environment and industrial biotechnology sectors.

Dr Bill de la Mare: researching regional marine development and growth

Dr Bill de la Mare is researching regional marine development and growth, enabling Australia to remain a marine nation long into the future.

Dr Beth Fulton: a world leader in marine ecosystem modelling

Dr Fulton is the developer of Atlantis, one of world’s most successful models in the field of ‘whole of ecosystem’ modelling for the marine environment.

Australian offshore mineral locations map

This map shows the location of Australia’s offshore mineral deposits.

Australasian ocean currents

Ocean currents have a significant impact on climate, and are in turn shaped by climatic conditions. The four main currents in the Australasian region are the Antarctic Circumpolar Current, the Leeuwin Current, the Indonesian Throughflow and the East Australian Current.

Atlantis ecosystem model rated best in the world

A marine ecosystem model developed by Dr Beth Fulton of CSIRO has been rated best in the world by the Food and Agriculture Organisation (FAO).

Dr Andrew Poole: marshalling advanced materials in the war on biofouling

Dr Andrew Poole’s capabilities span materials science and biological science. He has worked on environmental biotechnology, including microbial separation of oil-in-water emulsions, and microbial treatment of strong effluents. He leads research teams on marine biofouling and eco-friendly protein fibres.
