Climate & Ocean
Monitoring & Prediction
The major objective of the Climate and Ocean Monitoring and Prediction (COMP) project is the continued development of seasonal prediction capacity in Pacific Island National Meteorological Services (NMS). This includes the development of new ocean climate products and services. It's hoped that as the capacity to predict seasonal climate increases in Pacific countries, so too will the ability to implement strategies dealing with the management of climate variability and climate change. Pacific Islands' existing climate knowledge and capacities to deliver climate and ocean services are the foundations upon which we build; this is key to achieving the project objective.
These foundations were, in turn, established by the Pacific Islands Climate Prediction Project (PI-CPP).
Pacific Island Countries
The Online Climate Outlook Forum (OCOF), also known as the Pacific Islands online Climate Outlook Forum (PICOF), is a monthly discussion among the Met Services and the Bureau of Meteorology. It provides an opportunity for the Pacific Islands to give feedback, share any relevant experiences they have had with their clients, and to ask any questions regarding SCOPIC and the Climate Adaptation Projects.
