Assessing our climate and Earth system

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.

  • Atmospheric monitoring and modelling

    Our scientists are working to understand how interactions between the land and the atmosphere affect the Earth system, and working with industry, regulators and the community in the search for solutions to our air pollution problems.

  • Cape Grim greenhouse gas data

    The latest greenhouse gas (GHG) data updated monthly from one of the cleanest air sources in the world.

  • Aerospan aerosol characterisation

    AeroSpan is a network of automated instruments located to characterise the primary sources of Australian continental aerosol (dust and smoke).

  • Collaboration for Australian Weather and Climate Research (CAWCR)

    CAWCR is a partnership between Australia's leading atmosphere and ocean research agencies: the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO.

  • State of the Climate

    The State of the Climate reports are produced by CSIRO and the Australian Bureau of Meteorology. They provide a summary of observations of Australia’s climate and analysis of the factors that influence it for 2010, 2012 and 2014.

  • Climate Change: Science and Solutions for Australia

    Our free eBook presents scientific information on a series of climate change topics relevant to Australia and the world.

  • Climate change questions and answers

    Here we address some of the common questions raised about the changing climate and the science involved in studying it.

  • Strengthening Australia’s resilience to climate change

    Our research is ensuring that Australia is positioned to deal effectively with the impacts of climate change by providing the scientific knowledge needed to improve our ability to adapt. We equip policy makers, industries and communities with practical and effective adaptation options to climate change and variability.
