The CSIRO Division of Atmospheric Research took the place of the Division of Atmospheric Physics in 1988. Atmospheric Research carries out research in areas such as weather, climate and atmospheric pollution. This enables it to provide advice on issues such as air pollution, climate change and variability, ozone depletion and severe weather. On 1 July 2005 the Division was merged with CSIRO Marine to form CSIRO Marine and Atmospheric Research.
