Oke, P. R., D. A. Griffin, A. Schiller, R. J. Matear, R. Fiedler, J. V. Mansbridge, A. Lenton, M. Cahill, M. A. Chamberlain, K. Ridgway, 2012: Evaluation of a near-global eddy-resolving ocean model, Geoscientific Model Development, 6, 591-615, doi:10.5194/gmd-6-591-2013.
Bluelink was established in 2001, as a partnership between CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology, and the Royal Australian Navy, with the goal of developing an operational forecasting system for the global ocean circulation around Australia.
The Bluelink research team continues to develop forecasting capabilities for ocean circulation on scales ranging from global eddy-scales, regional shelf-scales and littoral beach-scales, for the benefit of the Australian community.
