The Australian Government Bureau of Meteorology (BOM) is the national meteorological authority for Australia. It provides weather forecasts, warnings and observations for all states and territories of Australia. There is also information about climate, hydrology and other weather services such as weather charts, radar images, satellite images and marine weather.
The Centre for Australian Weather and Climate Research will provide a coordinated approach to the areas of weather and climate research in Australia. The Centre is an equal partnership between the Bureau of Meteorology and CSIRO. Weather and climate researchers from both organisations will work to unlock the mysteries of climate change and to investigate the resulting challenges and opportunities.
Climate change in Australia is based upon international climate change research including conclusions from the IPCC's fourth assessment report. CSIRO and the Bureau of Meteorology have developed climate change projections for Australia in order to understand the likely magnitude of climate change and the possible impacts.
Marine, atmospheric and earth systems research driven by issues affecting Australia and the world.
