During November, there were several weeks when there was a problem with the Saral altimeter data stream. This meant that this data was not used to initialise OceanMAPS forecasts. The problem was at the data service provider end – and it has been corrected.
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.
