Welcome to the COSIMA Home Page.

COSIMA is the Consortium for Ocean-Sea Ice Modelling in Australia, which brings together Australian researchers involved in global ocean and sea ice modelling.

COSIMA’s origins date back to 2012. We are comprised of a number of university nodes (ANU, UNSW, UTas) and the major publicly-funded research agencies (Bureau of Meteorology, Australian Antarctic Division and the CSIRO) and are strongly supported by the National Computational Infrastructure and the Australian Research Council.

This website aims to distribute information on the current supported models, the research we do and the future trajectory of models we will use.
