Oceans and Atmosphere

Providing knowledge to manage Australia's marine areas and atmospheric environment.

Our research

  • Assessing our climate

    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.

  • Oceans and climate

    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.

  • Marine resources

    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.

  • Smarter coast management

    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.

  • Marine technologies

    We develop and deploy the science tools of the future to underpin and lead research in the oceans and atmosphere domain.

  • Connect

    The Oceans and Atmosphere Flagship newsletter connects you with CSIRO's cutting edge research into environmental protection and economic development for our skies and seas.

  • Do business with Oceans and Atmosphere

    We collaborate with local and international scientists, agencies and communities to deliver high impact research outcomes using our world leading facilities and technologies.
