How can we use ocean data to better support decision making for how we use our oceans? What sort of information presentation could provide more effective understanding of ocean dynamics beneath the ocean surface over a period of time?
Bluelink was established in 2001, as a partnership between CSIRO, Bureau of Meteorology, and the Royal Australian Navy, with the goal of developing an operational forecasting system for the global ocean circulation with an emphasis around Australia.
The Bluelink ocean model has been combined with a data assimilation system that blends ocean observations of satellite altimetry, satellite sea-surface temperature, and temperature and salinity from floats and moorings. The resulting reanalysis, called BRAN, provides a time-varying picture of the ocean circulation over the past 20 years.
This provides a rich dataset used in operational forecasting and can inform decision support tools used in various domains.
While you may be used to seeing weather data presented as two dimensional maps the environment beneath the ocean can be quite different to what we see on the surface.
