The Pacific Sea Level Monitoring (PSLM), operates under the Climate and Oceans Support Program in the Pacific (COSPPac). It is a continuation of the 20-year South Pacific Sea Level and Climate Monitoring Project (SPSLCMP). The 14 Pacific Island countries participating in the project are the Cook Islands, Federated States of Micronesia, Fiji, Kiribati, Marshall Islands, Nauru, Niue, Palau, Papua New Guinea, Samoa, Solomon Islands, Tonga, Tuvalu and Vanuatu. The primary goal of the project is to generate an accurate record of variance in long-term sea level for the Pacific region. The project also provides information about the processes, scale and implications of sea-level rise and variability of extreme events on South Pacific communities. It also makes sea-level data more readily available and usable to support management of coastal infrastructure and industries.
The SimCLIM for ArcGIS / Marine add-in is the only tool available in the world that gives access to the AR5 marine results. It can help you explore the impacts of climate change on marine biogeochemical cycles, sea level, and sea surface temperature. It is a user-friendly ArcGIS Desktop application launched as a toolbar. It allows you to evaluate uncertainties of ocean warming, offering less time-consuming analysis, and optimizing research costs as well as enhancing current capacity. It has a unique sea level rise dataset, with seasonal variation, including vertical land movement.

This web-based forecast tool is focused on the development and verification of seasonal forecasts for sea level for Pacific Partner Countries. 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). The web portal delivers gridded forecasts and skill maps using a navigable map overlain with geospatial information. Sea level anomaly plume plots are also available for Partner Countries in PACCSAP.
These forecasts were developed as part of the Pacific-Australia Climate Change Science Adaptation Planning programme (PACCSAP) Project 1.1.1: Seasonal prediction of sea-level anomalies in the Western Pacific.
- Relationship to other tools: The Seasonal Prediction of Sea Level Anomalies in the Western Pacific tool is linked to the Seasonal Prediction of Extreme Ocean Temperatures and Coral Bleaching tool. Forecast outlooks for both tools are generated via the POAMA seasonal prediction model. This tool is accessible to interested users who apply to the Australian Bureau of Meteorology to use the tool. Meteorological agencies from PACCSAP partner countries in the Pacific are the primary users of this tool.
