    • 1. Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing SystemPresentation to the TERN Symposium29th March, 2011
    • 2. Presentation Outline
      Status of current investments
      Research infrastructure available
      Uptake and use of the data streams (infrastructure)
      Potential for collaboration with TERN
      N.B. IMOS perspective
    • 3. Status of current investments
      IMOS established 2007
      Ramp-up phase 2007-9
      NCRIS investment peaked in 2009-10
      2009 EIF investment, to enhance and extend
      stable at ~$45M pa
      >50% co-investment
      Institutional partners
      Other partners
      mainly Aust. Government
      State Governments
      We are here
      $50M
    • 4. Research infrastructure available
      National-scale, in-situ, ocean observing system
      Integrated (IMOS)
      open-ocean to coastal
      physics, chemistry and biology
      Data-centric – all data discoverable, accessible and used by the science community
      and others
    • 5. Research infrastructure available- 10 platform-based national Facilities

      Led by UTAS on behalf of the marine and climate science community
      National Office and eMII
      Major institutions around the nation own and operate components of the system
      institutional strengths/expertise, available to all the community
      All make the data available to the whole community
      condition of contract

    • 29. Uptake and use of the data streams
      Marine and climate science
      Bluewater and coastal science
      Physics, chemistry and biology (ecosystem)
      In-situ observing and vessel-based observing and remote sensing
      Observations and modelling
      Validation and model development
      Data assimilation
      Observing system design
      And very significant international collaboration
      It’s a broad church...
    • 30. Uptake and use of the data streams
      Decisions about what to observe, and where, are driven by Science Plans addressing five major research themes
      Multi-decadal Ocean Change
      Climate Variability and Weather Extremes
      Major Boundary Currents and Inter-basin Flows
      Continental Shelf Processes
      Ecosystem Responses
    • 31. Major centres of marine and climate
      science capability in Australia

    • 33. Uptake and use of the data streams
      IMOS investments are guided by community-driven science and implementation plans (Node plans)
      They have all been internationally peer-reviewed
      And have evolved into an IMOS national science plan, with regional Node ‘chapters’
    • 34. Potential for collaboration with TERN- National, Regional, Functional
      National
      Coastal Zone, a ‘shared space’
      Marine, Terrestrial, Freshwater, Geophysical, Atmospheric
      Environmental information
      National leadership in changing the culture
      Regional
