Measuring the health of Antarctica’s ecosystems

Researchers have been granted more than half-a-million-dollars by the Australian Research Council to investigate the cause and consequences of apparent changes to environmental ecosystems in East Antarctica. The funding ($505,000) was awarded through the ARC’s Discovery Projects scheme.

Coastal landscape evolution

Researchers will use innovative modelling techniques to document and date the nature and implications of the historic environmental changes that shaped Australia’s modern coastal landscapes thanks to a $391,000 Australian Research Council Discovery Project grant.

Powering new energy designs

Australia has abundant renewable energy resources such as solar, hydro and wind. The wide use of clean energy sources will greatly reduce Australia’s demand for fossil fuels, cut greenhouse gas emissions, and alleviate global warming and climate change, resulting in significant environmental benefits to the country.

Making New Strategic Partnerships

The UOW is an international network of strategic partnerships - and we partner for a reason. Collectively we can tackle major global issues more effectively, and develop the next generation of exceptional researchers and industry leaders.

Future Of: Coastal Wetlands and Climate Change

The March instalment of the ‘Future Of’ series is from A/Prof. Kerrylee Rogers, an Environmental Scientist from the School of Earth, Atmospheric and Life Sciences and one of UOW’s Women of Impact.
