Marine Guides

The mini-guides to Marine Weather Services are intended to provide compact and essential information on Australia's marine forecasts and warnings for each State and the Northern Territory. They contain information on routine marine forecasts, definitions and terminology used, wind and warning categories, and information on forecast and warning delivery systems. A pocket-sized copy of this guide is available by contacting the Bureau's Weather Services Coordinator in your nearest capital city.
