Cross-cutting science that enables decision making
eReefs: coasts, computers and collaboration
eReefs is a platform that provides a picture of what is currently happening on the reef, and what will likely happen in the future. We are collaborating on eReefs with the Great Barrier Reef Foundation, AIMS, Bureau of Meteorology and the Queensland Government.
The Social and Economic Long-Term Monitoring Progam (SELTMP) is assisting Reef managers and other decision-makers within the Great Barrier Reef region to incorporate the human dimension into their planning and management. SELTMP gathers long-term data specific to Reef users, communities and industries, enabling new insights into relationships, vulnerabilities and dependencies between people and the natural resources.
Harvesting coral spawn slicks using industrial techniques
Restoring coral reefs is a global challenge that has been attempted around the world, with previous research achieving varying levels of success at small and localised scales. CSIRO, together with other leading Australian research organisations, is assessing the prospect of implementing restoration at the scale of the entire Great Barrier Reef.
