Welcome to the Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies.

The Institute for Marine and Antarctic Studies (IMAS) pursues multidisciplinary and interdisciplinary work to advance understanding of temperate marine, Southern Ocean, and Antarctic environments.

IMAS is a centre for both research and education. Our basic and applied research is characterised as innovative, relevant, and globally distinctive. Education at IMAS delivers world class programs, resulting in highly trained graduates who serve the needs of academic institutions, industry, government, and the community. Our natural advantages include our Southern Ocean location proximal to Antarctica and Tasmania hosting one of the world's largest critical masses of marine and Antarctic researchers.

The vision of IMAS is to be an internationally recognised centre of excellence for marine and Antarctic research and education. By translating nature in to knowledge, IMAS develops environmental understanding and facilitates sustainable development for the benefit of Australia and the world.
