Engineers at The University of Western Australia’s Civil, Environmental and Mining Engineering School (CEME) are using the expertise gained in the offshore oil and gas industry to help test the effectiveness of offshore artificial reefs (OARs) being deployed around Australia, including one earmarked for the waters off Rottnest Island.
The aim of the artificial reefs is to establish a sustainable marine environment to support productive fish communities for recreational fishing, says CEME senior lecturer Dr Scott Draper.
A tool that will enable surgeons to detect malignant breast cancer tissue during surgery using new imaging techniques has been developed by researchers at The University of Western Australia and the Harry Perkins Institute of Medical Research.
