Thomas Schroeder explains how remote sensing is used to monitor the Van Diemen Gulf.
How well do we know the aquatic plants and animals of northern rivers, wetlands and estuaries?
Some species of fish that look the same are actually different species and new species are still being discovered. Scientist Mark Kennard explains that the Daly River has a high biodiversity value with an array of different fish species. Understanding these different aquatic plants and animals is important in order to effectively manage for long-term resilience.
What is under the surface of tropical floodplains in Kakadu National Park? Tiffanie Nelson explains.
In this short video, Professor Jon Olley talks about TRaCK’s findings in relation to sediment, climate change and land use impacts across northern Australia and how these may affect the health of tropical river catchments.
Marine turtle and dugong are priority species for the Wunambal Gaambera Aboriginal Corporation’s Uunguu Rangers as well as federal conservation management plans. A new way to monitor these populations has been developed by the project team using a boat-based methodology. The team consists of the Ranger group, the North Australian Indigenous Land and Sea Management Alliance Ltd (NAILSMA) and CSIRO.
Any decisions about water allocation need to be transparent, and take into the account the needs of other users. In this short video Professor Stuart Bunn and Professor Poh Ling-Tan describe their research findings in relation to people’s attitudes about water planning in northern Australia.
In this short video Professor Natalie Stoeckl and Joe Morrison explain why Indigenous people may actually be worse off as a result of conventional development in northern Australia.
River experts believe that a two-tiered approach to monitoring river health in the wet-dry tropics is required. In this short video Professor Michael Douglas talks about some of the challenges of monitoring river health across such a vast and sparsely populated landscape.
Any plans to build dams in northern Australia need to be very carefully considered in terms of the trade-offs involved. In this short video Professor Stuart Bunn and Associate Professor Michele Burford discuss the implications of building dams in light of research carried out by the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge research program.
The biodiversity values of northern Australia are significant. In this short video, Professor Brad Pusey talks about how to better manage this unique biodiversity for future generations.
Australia’s tropical rivers are globally significant. They represent one of the largest free-flowing networks of rivers, and they flow through the world’s largest area of high quality tropical savanna. Watch this video to find out more about the research of the Tropical Rivers and Coastal Knowledge program, and the current state and future challenges facing Australia’s tropical rivers.
Researchers have identified gamba grass and other invasive weeds as a potential threat to landholder involvement in environmental offset programs such as the Carbon Farming Initiative.
Strategic savanna burning is one way to reduce Australia’s carbon emissions and create new markets in northern Australia, but the increased fuel load and emissions from weed infestations could make it unfeasible.
