About our research

Climate science to inform adaptation responses

The Climate Systems Hub undertakes research to advance the understanding of Australia’s climate and its extremes to support Australian decisions, policies and climate adaptation responses.

The Climate Systems Hub’s research portfolio includes a range of climate and Earth systems projects integrated across land, ocean and atmospheric research.

Our projects apply climate models, projections, process studies and observations analysis to enhance understanding of Australia’s current and likely future climate. This knowledge will be used alongside Traditional Knowledge and adaptation research to inform decision-making and improve Australia’s climate resilience.

In our 2022 Research plan, the Climate Systems Hub is undertaking 11 co-designed research projects. These projects have been scoped, planned and developed in collaboration with stakeholders. This co-design process will drive the Hub’s research directions, ensuring our research remains accessible, useable and relevant for Australian decision-makers and national and international researchers.
