Marine and Atmospheric Research, Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organization, Australia

Service Provider Description
CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) aims to advance Australian
climate, marine and earth systems science.

Our research focuses 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 effort has four major themes, each comprised of several
research streams.

-Climate, Weather and Ocean Prediction
-Living Atmosphere
-Marine Ecosystems and Resources
-Integrated Coastal and Oceans Management
