Oceanographic Services now encompass a wide range of National and International Projects associated with the Bureau of Meteorology. These include the Australian Baseline Sea Level Monitoring Project, BLUElink Ocean Forecasting Australia, the Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS), the Joint Australian Tsunami Warning Centre (JATWC), and the South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project. To learn more about our projects, see the 'Projects' links on the side navigation bar.
The project is designed to monitor sea level around the coastline of Australia. The ultimate goal is to identify long period sea level changes, with particular emphasis on the enhanced greenhouse effect on sea level.
BLUElink is a collaboration between CSIRO Wealth from Oceans Flagship, the Bureau of Meteorology and the Royal Australian Navy. It is a system designed to predict ocean currents, temperature and salinity for up to seven days in advance.
The Australian Tsunami Warning System (ATWS) is a national effort between the Australian Bureau of Meteorology, Geoscience Australian and Emergency Management Australian to provide a comprehensive tsunami warning system.
The South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project (SPSLCMP) is an Australian Government initiative, funded by the Australian Agency for International Development (AusAID), which will enable South Pacific Island Countries to better manage their own environments and contribute to achieving sustainable development.
