Event description

Description

This is an invitation to a marine industry-focused workshop on forecasting ocean temperatures around New Zealand/Aotearoa.

The forecasts are “seasonal” so essentially a few months ahead of time. This is designed to give advanced warning of events like marine heat waves.

NIWA has been working with the Australian Bureau of Meteorology for the past few years on the science and we are starting to develop products that might be of use to marine industries.

We have focused on specific areas around NZ but the approach can be applied to any region.

The workshop will be informal and present the science, the industry-relevant achievements for similar work in Australia and seek feedback from participants to develop NZ-specific tools.
