Background
CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) houses Australia’s leading regional climate change modelling research teams.

Our research aims to advance Australian climate, marine and earth systems science.

We focus on issues affecting Australia and the world, and we provide a range of scientific and consulting services that are underpinned by this research.

Australia is the custodian of one of the largest marine jurisdictions in the world, an area more than twice that of our land mass.

An enormous range of economic and recreational opportunities exist, while the oceans around Australia play a major role in controlling world and regional climate.

The atmospheric composition of the Southern Hemisphere and the exchange of gases with the land and sea are important in measuring, modelling and analysing climate change and ozone depletion.

Research themes
CMAR’s research is delivered largely through the National Research Flagships, in particular through research themes in the Wealth from Oceans Flagship, and with the Bureau of Meteorology through the Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research.

Climate and atmosphere
The Climate and Atmosphere theme develops Earth system models and knowledge of climate processes to make climate and ocean predictions and assess climate change impacts.

It aims to help our climate-sensitive society make better decisions.

Researchers use observations of the atmosphere and Earth to assess air quality, greenhouse gases and the interactions between land and air.

Their work focuses on policies, actions and methodologies that are responsive to changes in atmospheric health, for the responsible use of the atmosphere and its interactions with the Earth.

Australia’s large marine jurisdiction offers an enormous range of economic and recreational opportunities, while also meaning Australia can play a major role in controlling climate.Staff
CMAR comprises about 550 staff, plus more than 150 students, Fellows, and long-term visitors.

Staff are located at sites in five states:

Aspendale, Victoria
Canberra, ACT
Cleveland, Queensland
Floreat, Western Australia
Hobart, Tasmania.
The headquarters are located in the Hobart offices.

Facilities
CMAR also manages:

the Marine National Facility – Research Vessel Southern Surveyor
a number of marine and atmospheric collections
the Centre for Complex Systems Science.
CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research works at five sites around Australia with its head office in Hobart, Tasmania.

Profile - Facility Cape Grim, Tas (Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station)The Cape Grim Baseline Air Pollution Station in north-west Tasmania supplies vital information about changes to the atmospheric composition of the Southern Hemisphere.

Tracing elements: Clean Room facility measures marine micronutrientsThe Clean Room facility will be of particular interest to researchers and environmental managers working in marine waters.

Australia's Marine National Facility explores our oceansAustralia's Marine National Facility provides a research vessel operated by CSIRO and chartered by marine scientists to conduct oceanographic, geo-science, fisheries and ecosystem research of Australia's oceans.

Profile - Location Brisbane: Cleveland, Qld (Cleveland laboratory)Scientists at CSIRO's Cleveland Laboratory, south-east of Brisbane, study marine-based aquaculture and biotechnology, and northern fisheries and ecosystems.

Canberra: Black Mountain, ACT (Black Mountain laboratories)CSIRO Black Mountain laboratories in Canberra have facilities servicing insect, plant, atmospheric, land and water science.

Hobart, Tas (Hobart laboratories)CSIRO's Hobart laboratories provide research into sustainable marine resources and industries, climate, weather and ocean prediction, integrated coastal and oceans management as well as health and sustainable energy use.

Melbourne: Aspendale, Vic (Aspendale laboratories)CSIRO’s Aspendale laboratories undertake research into the atmospheric environment, including atmospheric pollution and the prediction of climate, weather and ocean processes.

Perth: Floreat, WA (Centre for Environment and Life Sciences (CELS))CSIRO Centre for Environment and Life Sciences is home to 300 scientists conducting researchto ensure an environmentally sustainable Australia and promoting and maintaining good health.
