Wednesday 19
12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Maja Adamska More Information
Title: Simple bodies of calcaronean sponges are products of complex developmental toolkits

Abstract: Evolution of animal body plans, and genomic changes that are underlying the morphological changes, are key biological problems. From cnidarians to humans, bodies are patterned by a (...)

How does a Venus flytrap know when to snap shut? How do flowers know when to show their pretty colours? Can plants actually hear the chatter of the neighbourhood? This seminar is a window open onto the realm of plants, one hour detour into the history of how we perceive them, what we know about (...)
Thursday 20
12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Lucy Wyatt More Information
Title: The Australian Coastal Ocean Radar Network facility of IMOS – present and future.

Abstract: HF ocean radars provide maps of surface currents over meso-scale areas of coastal ocean and make it possible to map real-time dynamics of sea surface currents across substantial areas of (...)
Friday 21
14:30 - SEMINAR - WAMSI Kimberley Marine Science Seminar 2 : A series of 3 FREE seminars on past, current and planned research in the Kimberley Website | More Information
Prof Charitha Pattiaratchi (UWA) WAIMOS Infrastructure in the Kimberley

West Australian Integrated Marine Observation System (WAIMOS) is a node of the Integrated Marine Observation System (IMOS) and with recent co-investment from the WA State Government, extended its deployment of (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Thesis Presentation: : Hydrodynamic modelling and fluorescent spectral methods for characterising the spatial distribution of phytoplankton. Website | More Information
Identifying structure in aquatic environments and showing the relationship to phytoplankton diversity is challenging because it is difficult to make direct measurements of all relevant variables at the necessary temporal and spatial scales. Two new approaches are demonstrated, which allow (...)
Wednesday 26
12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Erika Techera More Information
Title: Can Law Protect Sharks? Enhancing legal frameworks for the conservation and management of sharks

Abstract: Sharks are threatened by a range of activities including fishing and tourism as well as environmental impacts such as habitat loss and pollution. Addressing these challenges (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Corals form characteristic associations with symbiotic nitrogen fixing bacteria Website | More Information
A. Kimberley Lema1,2, Bette L. Willis1, and David G. Bourne2

1ARC Centre of Excellence for Coral Reef Studies and School of Marine and Tropical Biology, James Cook University, Townsville 4811, Australia ([email protected]; [email protected]) 2Australian Institute of Marine (...)

15:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Extreme rainfall over the south and north Website | More Information
Extreme rainfall over the south and north-west of Western Australia and the Sydney region of NSW over the last fifty years has been modelled using a Bayesian hierarchical approach based on statistical extreme value theory. Spatial variability of the extreme rainfall distribution is modelled using a (...)

12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Michael Stat More Information
Title: Coral-dinoflagellate symbiosis: evolution, ecology and interaction states

Abstract: Corals form an obligate symbiosis with unicellular photosynthetic dinoflagellates. The diversity of dinoflagellates associated with a host is the result of both evolutionary and ecological (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : The seasonal hydrodynamic habitat of the Sea of Galilee (Lake Kinneret, Israel) Website | More Information
Physical processes in lakes are the result of a large number of different mechanisms occurring over a wide range of temporal and spatial scales affecting ecosystem function in a variety of ways. Hence, a deep understanding of the lake hydrodynamics and its variability is essential in understanding (...)
Thursday 11
16:00 - SEMINAR - Hydrodynamics and sand transport on perched beaches in Western Australia : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
Beach morphology is the result of complex interactions between sand transport, mean sea level, wind, surface gravity waves, and currents, all of which act over a range of temporal and spatial scales. Interactions with rocky landforms add another level of complexity to the mechanisms of beach (...)
Tuesday 16
18:00 - PUBLIC LECTURE - **SOLD OUT ** Energy from the Ocean in Western Australia Website | More Information
A public lecture by Dr Scott Draper, Centre of Offshore Foundation Systems and UWA Oceans Institute.

Western Australia is bordered by substantial resources of marine energy - waves generated from storms in the Southern and Indian Oceans provide significant energy flux to the South of the (...)
Wednesday 17
12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Dr Laurence Mann More Information
Title: Perth Wave Energy Project – An Example of Multidisciplinary Ocean Engineering

Abstract: Carnegie’s first grid-connected CETO wave energy project is to be located at Garden Island in Western Australia as a result of the recent award of a $9.9m Federal Government grant from the (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Consistent abundance distributions of marine fishes in an old, climatically buffered, infertile seascape. Website | More Information
Macroecological theory predicts that along direct physiological gradients there will be unimodal abundance distributions of species and consistent rates of assemblage turnover. However, the majority of marine studies that have investigated the realised distribution of species along latitudinal or (...)
Thursday 18
15:00 - SEMINAR - Classification and morphodynamics of perched beaches : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
Throughout the globe, beaches are underlain and fronted seaward by rock and coral landforms. In Western Australia, many of our beaches are perched on coral, limestone and granite reefs and platforms. These hardlandforms have a strong influence on cross-shore and longshore sediment transport (...)

16:00 - SEMINAR - Securing the future of the Great Barrier Reef : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
The Great Barrier Reef is a valuable natural asset that provides $6 billion per annum to the Australian economy and supports more than 50,000 jobs, primarily in tourism. It’s an irreplaceable resource, a national and international icon, and it is slowly declining. In the past 50years more than half (...)

12:30 - SEMINAR - OI Seminar Series - Xabier Irigoyen More Information
Title: Anchovy collapse in the Bay of Biscay: to eat or not to eat

Abstract: Anchovy (Engraulis enchrasicolus) is one of the main resources of the Basquepurse seiner fleet in the Bay of Biscay, as well as a cultural item for thesociety. A succession of recruitment failures starting in (...)
Thursday 25
16:00 - SEMINAR - Greenhouse Gas Emissions from Small Ponds: From Arctic to Western Australia : SESE and Oceans Institute Seminar More Information
Lakes are now considered as significant greenhouse gas (GHG) conduits to the atmosphere. Small and shallow aquatic systems in particular such as ponds and wetlands can represent large GHG emitters as they generally contain high nutrients and organic carbon and have a small volume to area ratio (...)
Wednesday 31
16:00 - SEMINAR - CWR Presents : Pointing at Peak Phosphorus Website | More Information
South-western Australia was a part of Gondwanaland, and some of the most ancient parts of the Earth’ crust can be found here. Other parts of the landscape originated more recently from calcareous marine deposits [1]. Therefore, the soils of Western Australia are amongst the most heavily leached and (...)
