Dr Oliver Knox has brought together information from some of the industry’s researchers conducting work oncotton-producing soils.
Groundwater research at ANSTO has provided crucial information to support the management of finite groundwater resources appropriately and sustainably—answering questions about groundwater recharge, groundwater age and dynamics, the interaction between surface water and groundwater and salinisation.
Astonishing footage of a river in Queensland on fire has once again stoked the coal seam gas (CSG) debate.
Groundwater is the largest active freshwater resource on the planet.
As cave deposits grow, they lock into their minerals the chemical signatures of the environmental and climatic conditions of the time the rainwater fell at the surface.
Before we conducted our research, we simply didn’t know much about the deep groundwater system in Sydney Basin. With our new record, this means that if some future mining project impacts the groundwater, we can now use this pore water isotope records as a novel baseline to help determine the extent of the impact.
Recent research published in Scientific Reports has shown how cave formations preserve a history of past climate.
The National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS) funded network of remote measurement devices and cameras has provided documentation of the January 2015 extreme rainfall event in unprecedented detail.
Groundwater can be both a curse and a saviour for mining companies as they engineer ways of extracting Australia’s mineral wealth in a sustainable way.
Water banking in aquifers can make a major contribution to efforts to address critical sustainability issues in the Murray-Darling and do so in ways that are consistent with contemporary policy settings and the demands of a highly variable and changing climate.
