The research is discovery directed and aimed at addressing major environmental issues such as water resource sustainability, air pollution, human impact on Earth systems and waste in the environment.

While the research is focussed on Australia, ANSTO scientists collaborate with researchers around the world, and undertake investigations in locations as diverse as Antarctica, Chile and China and surrounding oceans.
