The problems facing coral reefs today are well documented. It’s an issue close to home for all Australians with the Great Barrier Reef’s ecosystem coming under pressure from a number of threats.
Elevated sediment volumes are a key stressor to coral reef ecosystems around the globe and Andrew Pomeroy from UWA’s Ocean Institute has been awarded a Fulbright Scholarship to undertake work to better understand the dynamics of sediment transport in coral reefs.
Good morning. On Tuesday we commemorate ANZAC Day, a poignant day in the nation’s calendar. The history of Australia’s involvement in conflict continues to be uncovered and some of our advanced undergraduate Archaeology students are playing a part in this.
The UWA Research Repository is now the definitive source of information about your publications. The previous Minerva system is no longer being used, and all the data previously held in Minerva has been migrated to the Research Repository. The Research Repository will now also provide publications information to Socrates. The system automatically collects publications from Web of Science and Scopus that have the by-line “University of Western Australia”.

As I indicated in my vision statement, our 2017 priorities clearly focus on the student experience and better alignment of educational offering with our world class research. We are committed to providing our students with a world class education experience.

Amellia always knew she had a love for animals, but was never one of those kids who dreamt of being a pilot.
