Brief description

The Bureau of Meteorology provides the Australian and international maritime communities with weather forecasts, warnings and observations for coastal waters areas and high seas around Australia. Generally most of these services are provided routinely throughout the day, while marine weather warnings may be issued at any time when the need becomes apparent.

Because of the complex nature of the sea, the Bureau of Meteorology uses advanced computer models to predict the physical characteristics of the ocean.

These computer forecasts are used by meteorologists in the preparation of marine forecasts and warnings. The forecasts include wind, weather, sea and swell and are intended to describe the average conditions over specified areas.

Marine forecasts have been enhanced by the inclusion of ocean currents and sea-surface temperature forecasts through the BLUElink ocean forecasting initiative.

Marine weather services include:
* Marine warnings
* Marine forecasts
* Forecasts of winds
* Sea and swell forecasts
* Marine weather observations
* Ocean services
* General weather services
* Definitions and terminology
* Ways to get weather information

Also included in this record are Weather Warnings Information, Australian High Seas Areas, Weather Analysis Archives, Satellite Products and Archive and Realtime Data and Formats.
