The Australian marine science and stakeholder community is large, diverse, and dispersed.  Nodes provide the means for IMOS to undertake national science and implementation planning, integrated across regions.  They identify the major research themes and science questions, and determine what we need to observe, where, when and how.  IMOS Node science and implementation plans have continued to be reviewed and developed over a number of years and provide a strong scientific underpinning for IMOS.
