Atmosphere and climate

We work to understand the role of the atmosphere in the Earth system and provide comprehensive, rigorous science to help Australia understand, respond to and plan for a changing climate.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • 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.

  • Oceans and climate change

    Just as our changing climate is influencing changes on the land, climate change is also having an effect beneath the waves of the world’s oceans and coastal waterways.

  • Planning for sea-level rise

    Coastal communities need to consider how best to plan for sea-level rise.

  • 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.

  • Adapting cities and coasts for climate change

    We are developing planning, design and management solutions to help Australia’s cities and coasts adapt to a changing climate.
