“We must improve how we treat our Reef”
Dr Christopher Doropoulos says utilising the masses of coral larvae released following annual spawning events could help restore our Reef.
Virtual work experience onboard our RV Investigator
Our team on research vessel Investigator is using virtual technologies to put people into places, roles and experiences not otherwise possible.
How much do marine heatwaves cost? The economic losses amount to billions and billions of dollars
Marine heatwaves are catastrophic impacts of climate change many of us are already familiar with. But how much do they cost society?
Blowing the lid off the volcanic story of Heard Island
Scientists studying a remote volcanic island have found it plays an important role in feeding a hungry ocean.
Outlining the risk for Aussie shark extinction
A new action plan assesses the extinction risk for Australian sharks making it easier to protect them.
How Australian bushfires changed the ocean
It's hard to forget the harrowing bushfires of the 2019-20 summer. The destruction on land was evident but the bushfires had a surprising positive effect on the ocean.
We analysed data from 29,798 clean-ups around the world to uncover some of the worst litter hotspots
Litter hotspots were associated with socioeconomic factors such as a concentration of built infrastructure, less national wealth and the level of lighting at night.
How much will our oceans warm and cause sea levels to rise this century? We’ve just improved our estimate
A new analysis, using 15 years of autonomous underwater measurements and simulations from the latest global climate models, refined our estimate of future ocean warming and sea level rise.
Creatures great and small: how water temperature influences marine copepod size
Supporting Bergmann’s Rule, we found temperature predicts marine copepod size. This could influence the amount of food available for fish.
Life lurking in dark waters: meet seven denizens of the deep
Scientists on our research vessel (RV) Investigator are uncovering the denizens of the deep that lurk in the ocean far beneath the waves.
Antarctica’s ice shelves in hot water
