The Centre for Southern Hemisphere Oceans Research (CSHOR) brings together international researchers to further scientific understanding of the southern hemisphere oceans and their role in global and regional climate. It is a collaborative research partnership between the Qingdao National Laboratory for Marine Science and Technology (QNLM) and the Commonwealth Scientific and Industrial Research Organisation (CSIRO). The University of New South Wales and the University of Tasmania are also partners in CSHOR. The Centre was established at CSIRO’s Hobart Marine Laboratories in May 2017.
Both Australia and China are strongly influenced by climate variability and change. They have a strong common interest in better understanding how the southern hemisphere oceans influence the climate of our region and the rest of the globe. By tackling the most fundamental questions in southern hemisphere ocean climate research, CSHOR will help to inform an effective response to the challenges of climate change and variability. CSHOR’s Science Plan provides more detail, the PDF is available at this link.
