Seasonal Prediction of Sea Level Anomalies in the Western Pacific [opens in new window]
The Seasonal Prediction of Sea Level Anomalies in the Western Pacific tool is focused on the development and verification of seasonal forecasts for sea level for Pacific partner countries. These forecasts are generated using the Predictive Ocean Atmosphere Model for Australia (POAMA).
Under climate change, sea level is predicted to rise with Pacific Island countries and Timor-Leste being particularly vulnerable.
Relationship to other tools:
The Seasonal Prediction of Sea Level Anomalies in the Western Pacific tool is linked to the Seasonal Prediction of Extreme Ocean Temperatures and Coral Bleaching tool. Forecast outlooks for both tools are generated via the POAMA seasonal prediction model.
Who can use it:
This tool is accessible to interested users who apply to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology to use the tool. Meteorological agencies from PACCSAP partner countries in the Pacific are the primary users of this tool.
