Providing knowledge to manage Australia's marine areas and atmospheric environment.
Providing the ocean and atmospheric science needed for a sustainable, healthy, and well-prepared Australia as part of a global effort focused on climate, energy and air quality interactions, and climate, carbon and water feedbacks.
Delivering globally consistent and authoritative information and services that enable Australian governments, industries and communities to predict and respond to weather, climate and ocean variability and change, and extreme events.
We're providing scientific knowledge and tools to support commercial development of Australia’s marine resources (e.g. fisheries, offshore oil and gas etc.), while mitigating environmental impacts and conserving marine biodiversity.
More than 85 per cent of Australians live less than 50 kilometres from the coast. We’re providing Australian governments, industries and communities with knowledge, tools and integrated approaches to manage their expanding coastal footprint.
We develop and deploy the science tools of the future to underpin and lead research in the oceans and atmosphere domain.
CSIRO’s Ocean and Atmosphere research is uniquely placed to deliver significant economic, social and environmental benefits for Australia and the region. We seek to secure Australia’s future through our seas and skies.
