Seasonal Prediction of Extreme Ocean Temperatures/Coral Bleaching

The Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science and Adaptation Program (PACCSAP) project Seasonal prediction of extreme ocean temperatures/coral bleaching provides seasonal forecasts of ocean temperature and coral bleaching risk. These forecasts are generated using the Australian Bureau of Meteorology's Predictive Ocean Atmosphere Model for Australia (POAMA). This is a global ocean-atmosphere coupled ensemble seasonal forecast system developed jointly by the Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) and the CSIRO Division of Marine and Atmospheric Research (CMAR).
