Reeling in smart tech for sustainable fishing
Could technology change the face of fishing? We asked our experts to reflect on one of our winning competition entries as part of this World Oceans Day series.
Mapping our oceans: running the machines that go ‘ping’
What goes ping and is mapping the seafloor? Matt Boyd takes us underwater with the discoveries found on RV Investigator with the machine that goes ping!
Putting biodiversity conservation on the map
Up to half a million species across the world are facing extinction. But how do we prioritise biodiversity conservation efforts? Our map helps.
New (s)tool in the COVID-19 pipes
Researchers have achieved the first step in developing an early warning surveillance system to track COVID-19 in the community tracing the virus in sewage.
Track to the future: climate change and your city
What will your city feel like in 50 years' time, in 2070? Climate predictions tell us that Melbourne will feel like northern parts of Adelaide.
Spark of hope in Australia’s bushfire crisis
As we adapt to more severe weather events in a changing climate, we need a better understanding of how bushfires start and spread.
Nitrogen fertilisers are incredibly efficient, but they make climate change a lot worse
Measurements and modelling have found nitrous oxide emissions, a greenhouse gas 265 times more potent than carbon dioxide, are significantly higher than previously reported.
Tropical ocean bacteria help pump CO2 out of the atmosphere
Nitrogen-fixing bacteria help tropical phytoplankton absorb carbon dioxide, creating a biological pump in the oceans.
Bringing biodiversity conservation in from the wilderness
Our new research has found wilderness areas act as a buffer against biodiversity extinction risk.
Protecting threatened species: how to get the best bang for your buck
Almost 2000 Australian species are listed as threatened or endangered. How can the agencies tasked with protecting them do the best job they can with the resources they have?
Every week is science week on RV Investigator!
In the wake of National Science Week, we check in with our research vessel Investigator on a voyage in the Coral Sea.
