The Australian Charities and Not for Profit Commission has officially endorsed the Centre for Aquatic Research as a Research Charity. This means that we are recognised as an organisation that is operating in the charitable interests of Education and the Environment.
With this milestone achieved, we are now putting in place our research plans for some initial aquatic environments. These plans will allow us to ground truth our improvements to aquatic research techniques that are currently used throughout the research industry. One of these techniques involves creating photo realistic 3D maps of the aquatic environment allowing researchers to gather important data such as species diversity, habitat structure, complexity, and even monitor phenomenon such as climate change.
