IMOS, or the Integrated Mooring Oceanographic System, has loads of robots out in the ocean measuring data right now, which relay all of their data via satellite back to scientists to study.
The team at the moorings workshop at the CSIRO Hobart Marine Laboratories have ordered it in, as they’ll be heading down to the Southern Ocean next April with Professor Tom Trull, from the Antarctic Climate and Ecosystems CRC, to retrieve a mooring and replace it with a new one.
Australia could make enormous progress towards a more environmentally sustainable future without a major change in what we value. Here’s how.
While most Australians believe climate change is real, many think it won’t impact on their lives – according to our latest Climate Attitudes survey.
Wouldn’t it be good if there were a spare ecosystem we could try things out on before making decisions? That’s why we built Atlantis, a marine ecosystem modelling tool for testing out resource and planning decisions.
Farmers and landholders will be able to apply for payments through the Federal government’s A$2.55 billion Emissions Reduction Fund this week. Our analysis shows that Australia’s climate policies could have a significant impact on biodiversity – if we think carefully about the right approach, price and location.
A look at how we use climate models to consider plausible future scenarios and project what Australia’s climate may look like decades – or even hundreds of years – in the future.
With two tropical cyclones bearing down on Queensland and the Northern Territory we ask our climate scientists what we can expect from cyclones in the future.
Australia is on track for up to 1.7C of warming this century IF the world curbs its greenhouse emissions. Working with BOM, we’ve released the most comprehensive climate change projections to date.
