CSIRO’s Transport Planning Tool

My inner map geek is very happy this month.

I’ve recently written a couple of pieces for CSIRO about TraNSIT, their transport planning tool. First developed ten years ago for use in the livestock industry, the tool now helps with supply chain efficiency in a range of industries. It has even been used in the tourism sector, and to assist Emergency Management Australia during extreme weather events.

The first piece I wrote was an overarching history about the last ten years of TraNSIT.

While the second focused on how it can be used to get supplies to communities during floods or fire.

Hope you enjoy reading them.

CSIRO climate change research

I’ve recently enjoyed writing another couple of pieces for CSIRO, and thought I would share the links here in case they’re of interest.

The first is a post on the ECOS blog that explains compound risk and explores ways of supporting Australian communities that are dealing with multiple extreme events: How to build resilience in the face of compounding extreme events.

The second is a piece for Resourceful magazine about the new Carbon Lock research initiative: Locking away carbon permanently.

My latest pieces for CSIRO

I’m deep in a big travel writing project at the moment, but in December and January it was science writing keeping me busy!

Here are some of the recent pieces I’ve written for CSIRO, Australia’s national science agency:

Copywriting for CSIRO

The last few months have probably been the busiest I’ve had since starting work as a freelance writer.

I keep thinking I’m going to get a week or two away from my desk, but every time I near the end of one project, another opportunity pops into my inbox. It’s a really lovely problem to have, and I’m feeling very lucky!

Most of the writing I’ve been doing has been behind-the-scenes work for clients. Some ghostwriting, a few websites, and lots of fact sheets and brochures. Not so much editorial work recently. Continue reading “Copywriting for CSIRO”

There’s gold in them hills

 

My latest post for CSIRO’s Resourceful magazine went live last week.

It’s all about the work being done to accelerate mineral analysis on Australian mining sites. We’re finally rolling out technology on Earth that has been used on Mars for years!

If you’d like to read the article, head over to the Resourceful pages on CSIRO’s website.

CSIRO ECOS blog: Oil and Gas Infrastructure

I’m really pleased to share another post that I’ve written for CSIRO.

Like the Future Seas 2030 post that I wrote last month, this was a piece of writing commissioned by the Oceans and Atmosphere Division. It even involved speaking to one of the same researchers – 2020 Tasmanian Australian of the Year Dr Jess Melbourne-Thomas. Continue reading “CSIRO ECOS blog: Oil and Gas Infrastructure”

CSIRO ECOS blog: Future Seas 2030

If you follow any of my social media channels you’ll know that I absolutely love the ocean. I was born on a small island in Scotland, and now live on a small island in Australia. I’m never happier than when I’m surrounded by water.

I was thrilled a few weeks ago to receive a commission from CSIRO’s Oceans and Atmosphere division to write a piece for the ECOS blog on the Future Seas 2030 initiative. Continue reading “CSIRO ECOS blog: Future Seas 2030”
