IMOS is designed to be a fully-integrated, national system, observing at ocean-basin and regional scales, and covering physical, chemical and biological variables. IMOS observations are carried out by 10 national Facilities, each deploying a particular type of observing platform. IMOS Facilities, operated by partner institutions around the country, are funded to deploy equipment and deliver data streams for use by the entire Australian marine and climate science community and its international collaborators.
The AODN Portal allows marine and climate scientists and other users to discover and explore data streams coming from each of the Facilities – some in near-real time, and all as delayed-mode, quality-controlled data.
The Asset Map provides a visualisation of all IMOS assets, from its ten facilities.
