Report at a glance
The Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO play an important role in monitoring, analysing and communicating observed changes in Australia’s climate.
Australia's changing climate
Australia’s weather and climate are changing in response to a warming global climate system.
Oceans and cryosphere
The oceans surrounding Australia have warmed, with the greatest surface warming to the west and south of the continent.
Observed regional trends in rainfall and temperature can seem small when compared to daily, monthly and seasonal climate variability. However, such changes in the average climate, experienced over multiple decades, can have a large influence on ecosystems, agriculture and the built environment.
The Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO monitor, archive, analyse, model, interpret and communicate Australia’s observed and future weather and climate.
