A sample of our projects carried out in close collaboration with the industry and government partners.
Engineering buildings for better earthquake resistance
Laying the foundations for building standards and codes of practice that mitigate the impact of earthquakes across Australia and Asia.
Groundwater insights improve resource management
A hydrological research collaboration identifies how climate and other factors influence catchment resilience to disturbances such as droughts, and suggests Australia’s water catchments might not be as resilient as first thought.
New command centres control emergency scene data
Sharing data from the multitude of sensors deployed at accident or disaster sites is the aim of a collaboration designed to improve the flow of critical information and response of those coordinating emergency services.
Remote drone surveillance maps horticulture crop health
Fruit trees and grape vines are being monitored by drones carrying high-resolution multi-spectral, hyper-spectral and thermal cameras, helping growers assess the health of their crops.
Statistics to help target better environmental water flows
Helping governments and communities ensure the greatest possible ecological benefits are achieved from ‘environmental flows’ (water released specifically to improve environmental condition) through the analysis of data collated from monitoring programs.
Water quality predictions support better catchment management
Water data collected over more than 20 years has been used to understand the key drivers of changes in water quality across over 100 Australian catchments. We used the results to develop predictive models that will help natural resource managers address declining water quality in Australia’s streams, lakes, estuaries and coastal seas.
