The Bureau of Meteorology is Australia's national weather, climate and
water agency. Its expertise and services assist Australians in dealing
with the harsh realities of their natural environment, including
droughts, floods, fires, storms, tsunami and tropical cyclones. Through
regular forecasts, warnings, monitoring and advice spanning the
Australian region and Antarctic territory, the Bureau provides one of
the fundamental and most widely used services of government.

The Bureau contributes to national social, economic, cultural and
environmental goals by providing observational, meteorological,
hydrological and oceanographic services and by undertaking research into
science and environment related issues in support of its operations and
services.

The Climate and Oceans Support Program for the Pacific (COSPPac) is a
major component of the assistance being provided by Australia to help
Pacific Island countries better adapt to, and mitigate, the impacts of
climate variability and change. It aims to improve the routine
collection and application of climatic and oceanographic data which,
combined with capacity development and communications, will enable
Pacific national meteorological services (NMSs) to develop and deliver a
wide range of routine and specialised climate services.

The appointee will use their expertise in Oceanography to create set of
Ocean Climatologies for the Pacific. Tasks will include assessing
existing historical wave, Sea Surface Temperature (SST) and sea level
data. The ability to manipulate and analyse ocean climate data will be
necessary as well as a thorough understanding of the oceanic processes
that drive climate in the Pacific.
