CSIRO Division of Marine and Atmospheric Research

The Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO) is Australia’s national science agency and one of the largest and most diverse research agencies in the world.

Hobart’s status as a global centre of Antarctic and Southern Ocean research and its proximity to the Southern Ocean has made it the logical home to the CSIRO’s Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR) Division.

More than 300 staff in Hobart undertake research in the assessment of atmospheric and earth systems and the prediction of climate, weather and ocean processes, coastal management and the sustainability of marine resources. 

The facilities in Hobart include the ocean research vessel Southern Surveyor, marine laboratories, engineering workshops and Australia’s largest marine research library.
