The Institute

NZARI partners with research agencies to develop a global understanding of Antarctica's impacts and vulnerability in a changing global climate.  

Our vision is to inform industry, government and community alike so that we can plan for impacts of change and where possible mitigate them.

Our focus is Antarctica, the Southern Ocean and the Sub-Antarctic.  In particular the Ross Sea Sector, where the Southern Ocean reaches its furthest south (85oS) beneath the Ross Ice Shelf.

Funding for NZARI is sought from organisations concerned with global scale connections to Antarctica and consequences of its changing environment.

NZARI is a charitable trust.
