A wizard with wavelengths

CSIRO researchers are using a range of techniques, including spectral analysis, to help monitor and manage environmental impacts of mining. Issues investigated have included the effect of groundwater pumping and diverted water flow on native vegetation, the efficiency of bioremediation in constructed wetlands, and the discharge of toxins from mine sites. Other work has developed techniques for specially differentiating algal species as an aid to both environmental management and salt production.
