Climate Change Cluster
Coral symbiosis model by Malin Gustafsson
Spectral measurements of native grasslands are being combined with field and remotely sensed data to help better manage these threatened ecosystems
Microsensor technology gives C3 researchers insight into how light is used in photosynthesising organisms like coral, algae and biofilms
C3 Director Prof. Peter Ralph launches the CSIRO Coastal Carbon Cluster, Australia’s largest ever coastal blue carbon accounting and measurement study.
Marine microalgae like this Gamberdiscus species produce toxins that can severely impact the aquaculture industry and human health.
C3 researchers have developed major strengths in assessing the impact of human-induced change, as well as climate change, on ecologically important aquatic ecosystems like coral reefs.
The C3 Biofuels Research Program, uses PBR technology, to optimise algal growth conditions for more efficient production of renewable energy.
C3 researchers and students participate in oceanographic research and collaborate within the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS)
Collaborating with the AusCover network C3 remote sensing and modelling specialists help validate and calibrate satellite based biophysical map products
The destruction of seagrass meadows is a major concern: C3 research is helping to protect and value these disappearing ecosystems
Seagrass experts at C3 are helping to quantify the amount of carbon that can be stored in sediments and the impact of bacteria on this storage.
UAVs, aka Drones, are used in C3's remote sensing research
C3's ecological modellers are helping resource managers better respond to the impacts of climate change on agricultural production

Coral Research Update
Coral symbiosis revealed at nanoscale
Mathieu Pernice uses innovative technology to visualise nutrient and energy transfer in reef building corals, exploring how they balance growth versus resilience to thermal stress
