Conserving oceans of life (Podcast 08 Jun 2010)

In this vodcast we meet two Hobart based CSIRO research scientists working to conserve our oceans’ biodiversity, and a visiting scientist applying his expertise to an Atlantic salmon breeding program. (7:23)

Climate change threatening the Southern Ocean (Podcast 02 Dec 2009)

CSIRO scientists are observing changes in ocean temperatures, ocean chemistry and global sea levels. The impact of climate change on marine biodiversity is becoming more apparent. To reduce this impact, urgent action needs to be taken to reduce greenhouse gas emissions and stabilise global warming. (7:54)

Sea level on the rise (Podcast 02 Feb 2007)

In this five-and-a-half-minute podcast, CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship's Dr John Church, discusses whether our climate is responding more quickly to rising carbon emissions than previously predicted. (5:28)

Littlest ship an 'ocean science giant' (Podcast 15 Nov 2006)

Listen to Captain Evan Solly discuss the Kaharoa, a tiny New Zealand research vessel that is transforming the study of oceans and climate in the Southern Hemisphere, in this three-minute podcast. (3:17)

Great white shark’s incredible journey (Podcast 02 Nov 2006)

In this seven-minute podcast, CSIRO’s Mr Barry Bruce talks about a female great white shark who travelled thousands of kilometres around the Australian coast. (7:02)

CSIRO’s role in the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report (Podcast 09 Feb 2007)

Dr Penny Whetton from CSIRO’s Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) discusses CSIRO’s role in this latest report in this podcast. (3:55)

The effect of climate and weather on our oceans (Podcast 20 Feb 2007)

In this six-and-a-half-minute podcast, the former Chief of CSIRO’s Marine and Atmospheric Research division, Dr Greg Ayers discusses the topic of his 2007 Malcolm McIntosh Lecture – the complex relationship between oceans, climate and weather. (6:32)

Barrier Reef bleaching (Podcast 09 Mar 2007)

Dr Peter Turner discusses a new tool which provides daily updates of the risk of ‘coral bleaching’ in the Great Barrier Reef in this five minute podcast. (5:16)

Cold water eddy 'monsters' mighty current off Sydney (Podcast 16 Mar 2007)

In this six-minute podcast Dr David Griffin, from the Wealth from Ocean's Flagship, explains how a huge dense eddy was the reason the sea was so cold off the coast of NSW this summer. (6:23)

Fish ear bones reveal effect of climate change (Podcast 27 Apr 2007)

The bones in the ears of some coastal and deep sea fish species in the south west Pacific show the effect of climate change. (5:24)

How removing predators can save seabirds (Podcast 25 Jul 2007)

The findings of a new study, which found removing invasive predators from island breeding colonies could save more seabirds for less cost than reductions in fishing, are explained by CSIRO’s Dr Chris Wilcox in this five-minute podcast. (5:05)

CSIRO marine scientist named life scientist of the year (Podcast 19 Sep 2007)

Dr Beth Fulton explains her work in marine ecosystem modelling and how it's being applied in Australia and overseas. (6:02)

The wind, climate change and the Southern oceans (Podcast 18 Feb 2008)

We all know that the oceans are warming, especially in our polar regions. But what role does wind play in raising surface, or deeper, ocean temperatures? A 15 year study of water temperature profiles undertaken by CSIRO, French and US scientists is revealing some surprising answers. (5:46)

Countdown to Satellite Launch and new era of ocean research (Podcast 20 Jun 2008)

Teams of climate change researchers around the world will be anxiously counting down the launch of the Jason-2 satellite from California, scheduled for 20 June 2008. Successful lift-off will mean a whole new era in detecting the expansion of our oceans and sea level rise, both major indicators of climate change. (5.30)

Deep sea coral to reveal a history of climate change (Podcast 20 Jan 2009)

An American research vessel, the RV Thomas G. Thompson, has arrived back in Hobart after an expedition to collect deep-sea corals south of Tasmania. An un-manned deep-diving ‘Remotely Operated Vehicle’ (ROV) with a capacity to go as deep as 6000 metres was used to collect samples and data, and photograph and video areas of the ocean floor. (9:17)

Climate change impacting on the Southern Ocean (Podcast 25 Mar 2009)

The Southern Ocean is changing, and evidence shows that around the Antarctic, the Southern Ocean is warming at a faster rate than the global ocean average. (4:46)

Alien invaders are on the march (Podcast 22 May 2009)

While the implications of climate change for biodiversity have been widely recognised, the insidious effect of invasive alien species (IAS) on global biodiversity stays under the radar. (4:50)

CSIRO’s response to second volume of IPCC report (Podcast 06 Apr 2007)

Dr Chris Mitchell discusses the second volume of the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change report published in Brussels, in this four-and-a half minute podcast. (4:29)

Wave energy surges forward under new CSIRO study (Podcast 21 Sep 2010)

Waves produced in Australia's southern oceans are a world-class, clean energy resource which could deliver a significant proportion of the nation’s future energy needs, according to CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship oceanographers, Dr Mark Hemer and Dr David Griffin. (4:51)

Making ocean life count (Podcast 22 Jun 2009)

CSIRO statisticians and marine researchers in the Wealth from Oceans Flagship are working to understand marine ecological processes in a critical range of Australia's continental slope. (3:46)

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)
