The Climate Systems Analysis Group (CSAG) is involved in a variety of research projects. The majority of the research is in the physical sciences, with focus on the generation of robust, relevant, regional climate change information while advancing our understanding of the dynamics and processes that drive the coupled climate system.

Recognising the importance of actively engaging with stakeholders in the co-production of knowledge, CSAG’s research projects also focus on stakeholder engagements and the building of relationships between science and society. In that context research also branches into the application of climate data, through a focus on impacts, adaptation and vulnerability in the context of climate variability and change.
