Prof Nathan Bindoff is leader of the Climate Futures for Tasmania Project and also a Project Leader with the Oceans Program. His current positions also include CSIRO-UTAS Professor of Physical Oceanography and Director of the Tasmanian Partnership for Advanced Computing. He specialises in ocean climate and the earth’s climate system. He has documented some of the first evidence for changes in the climate change signals in the Indian, North Pacific, SouthPacific and Southern Ocean’s and shown some of the first evidence of changes in the Earths hydrological cycle.

Dr Andrew Constable is leader of the ACE Ecosystem Impacts Program and is a marine zoologist by background. His research interests involve the development of population, food web and ecosystem models to facilitate studies on ecosystem dynamics and to aid the development of appropriate conservation measures and sustainable fishing limits. This includes taking into account the impacts of climate change. Dr Constable is actively involved in negotiation with international science collaborators and coordination with industry, government and NGOs. He is also a Principal Research Scientist at the Australian Antarctic Division.

Prof Tom Trull is leader of the ACE Carbon Program and a chemist and oceanographer by background. His interests include investigating the carbon cycle of the Southern Ocean, the ocean’s ongoing ability to absorb carbon from the atmosphere, ocean acidification and ocean fertilisation. As well as ACE Carbon Program Leader, his current positions include CSIRO-UTAS Professor of Marine Biogeochemistry; CSIRO-UTAS Quantitative Marine Science PhD Program Director; IMOS Southern Ocean Time Series Facility Leader and Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution Adjunct Scientist.

Dr van Ommen is leader of the ACE Cryosphere Program. His main research interests centre around ice core palaeoclimate studies generally, and in particular, integrating ice core records with meteorological data. His role as leader of the Cryosphere team includes overseeing ACE’s ice sheet and sea ice investigations. Dr van Ommen is involved through the International Partnerships in Ice Core Sciences (IPICS), in developing plans for recovering the oldest ice from the Antarctic ice sheet. This aims to link ice sheet dynamics and ice core data, to identify potential locations where oldest ice might be located, and more generally to understand the history and evolution of the ice sheet. Dr van Ommen is also Program Leader for Climate Processes and Change with the Australian Antarctic Division.
