Mining Geomechanics Team
The Mining Geomechanics team provides scientific tools and practical solutions to industry to minimise adverse impacts of mining on the environment and improve safety and productivity of mining operations.
Coastal environments are of considerable socio-economic importance and provide multiple services to humankind, but are subject to numerous anthropogenic stressors. This project aims to develop a new generation of ecological assessment tools and models, based on environmental DNA, for the management of these ecosystems.
BHP Billiton Petroleum and CSIRO have formed a strategic marine research partnership to increase the ecological understanding of the Ningaloo Coast World Heritage Area’s deep and shallow reefs and the reef’s shark and turtle populations.
ParIS: Particle Imaging System
ParIS allows the automatic analysis of large coal images which provide reliable statistics on the distribution of coal types and impurities.
The goal of the Ocean Futures project is to develop new insights, approaches, understanding and tools that can help marine scientists, managers and policy makers prepare for future challenges.
Hard rock cutting technologies for mining
We are searching for alternative cutting methods that allows reducing the size of the excavation machines, without compromising their effectiveness in breaking hard rocks.
Global Initiative for Honey Bee Health
Honey bees (Apis mellifera) are essential for the pollination of about one third of the food we eat – including fruit, vegetables, oils, seeds and nuts – yet globally their heath and ability to pollinate our crops is under serious threat.
We catalyse new interdisciplinary collaborations and partnerships that stimulate novel approaches to complex environmental challenges for society.
