Ocean conditions for the Spencer and St Vincent Gulfs

View hind-cast, now-cast and forecasts for ocean conditions in the Spencer and St Vincent Gulfs. Conditions are shown at a very-high-resolution using a 500 m grid.

Ocean conditions in the Spencer and St Vincent Gulfs are mapped using the Two Gulfs Model (TGM). The now-casts occur about 48 hrs late due to the additional computational time of the TGM and other factors. These will be fixed in Phase II of this system.
