Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) was established in 2007
under the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS), with initial funding of $50M and co-investment of S44M from partners. It has successfully deployed a range of observing equipment in the oceans around Australia, making all of the data freely and openly available through the IMOS Ocean Portal for the benefit of Australian marine and climate science as a whole.
With an additional $52M from the Education Investment Fund (EIF) provided in the 2009 Federal Budget IMOS was extended out to mid-2013, and able to enhance its monitoring in the Southern Ocean and northern Australian waters.
