The pesticide detectives program will support citizen scientist based research to assess the occurrence of pesticides commonly used around the home in Australias waterways. Citizens will work with researchers from the Centre for Aquatic Pollution identification and management (CAPIM) to conduct a national survey of concentrations of current use pesticides within waterways draining from catchments of varied land-use. The program will assess chemicals commonly found in the home, therefore educating participants about products they may use, how they may enter our waterways and risks they may pose. The data collected will provide impetus for policy and debate to reduce the occurrence of and risks from pesticides in Australias waterways.

Industry and Science Growing Business Investment Resources Australian Subsurface Carbon Sequestration Simulator UNIVERSITY OF MELBOURNE

Accurate simulation, forecasting, and monitoring of carbon dioxide behaviour is a prerequisite for safe and cost-effective subsurface CO2 abatement. Supporting the Australian clean coal and energy sectors in this quest, with tools and expertise that will boost productivity by transforming traditional discipline-separated sequential workflows, is the goal of this reservoir engineering - hydrogeophysics - simulation-guided engineering project. Via new multiphysics software integrating:
1) fine-grained parallel space-time adaptive injection simulation,
2) forecasting of the CO2-plume geophysical signature,
3) inverse analysis of the plume, and 4) simulation-driven design of injection and monitoring systems, we will improve subsurface knowledge and advance the understanding of Australia’s storage capacity. Demonstration and validation of this new carbon dioxide storage methodology will occur with datasets from Otway, Aquistore and a Chinese Carbon Capture & Storage site.
