A Griffith University research team are finalists in the 2017 Australian Museum Eureka Prizes for their work aimed at improving Great Barrier Reef water quality. The team, led by Associate Professor Andrew Brooks of the Griffith Centre for Coastal Management, has transformed how sediment sources are identified and targeted, resulting in a significant shift in government policy […]
Ex-Cyclone Debbie dumped rain in an erosion hot spot in the Burdekin catchment estimated to generate nearly a third of all the sediment that flows to the Great Barrier Reef.
Griffith University researchers will further their fight to protect the Great Barrier Reef after new research revealed its resilience is rapidly waning. The collaborative study between institutions across the world, published in the prestigious journal Nature today, examined whether past exposure to bleaching in 1998 and 2002 made reefs any more tolerant in 2016. Sadly […]
World-first research on the Great Barrier Reef has shown how ‘weed-like’ algae will kill vital coral because of increased carbon dioxide concentrations in the atmosphere. The Griffith University study, conducted in collaboration with national and international experts in reef and chemical ecology, showed that if the world continues with ‘business as usual’ CO2 emissions, important […]
Fish populations could be threatened by climate change and its effect on a special relationship between jellyfish and juvenile fish, researchers have found.
Cardboard and LED lights were used to transform Evandale Parklands into the ocean floor earlier this year when Griffith University students took part in the third annual Glow Festival.
A team of economists and scientists led by Griffith University’s Dr Jim Smart have found a ‘nitrogen trading scheme’ amongst cane farmers could help protect the Great Barrier Reef.
