The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) is a world-class centre of excellence for research and education at the University of Tasmania. Its research is innovative, relevant, and globally distinctive while its education delivers first-class programs resulting in highly trained scientists and researchers serving the needs of academic institutions, industry, government and the community. IMAS has three core research programs in Fisheries and Aquaculture, Ecology and Biodiversity, and Oceans and Cryosphere. These are linked by the cross-disciplinary themes of Climate change, Ocean-Earth systems and Oceans and Antarctic governance.
CSIRO is Australia’s national science agency. At CSIRO Oceans and Atmosphere we conduct multidisciplinary research across ocean, atmospheric and climate sciences, including studying the physical processes contributing to, and affected by, global climate change. Our Centre for Southern Hemisphere Oceans Research brings together international researchers to further scientific understanding of the southern hemisphere oceans. Our Antarctic research includes investigating the role of the Southern Ocean in determining the fate of Antarctic land and sea ice.
The Antarctic Science Foundation is a registered environmental charity. We build public-private partnerships globally and raise funds through philanthropy, business, government and the community to support world class scientific research that advances the understanding and protection of the Antarctic, Southern Ocean and subantarctic natural environment and its impact on our planet.
