On the left: Maps showing average sea surface temperature (SST) for the Great Australian Bight (GAB) for the most recent week available as measured by satellite ("Nowcast"), and for the next fortnight through to 2 months in future as forecast by POAMA ("Forecasts"). The mean over the whole area shown is given in the top left corner of each map. The black line represents the 200 m contour.
On the right: Map showing corresponding areas of preferred juvenile SBT habitat (based on SST), as determined from historical archival tag data. For more details go to Estimating habitat preferences. Values > 1 indicate more preferred habitat, values < 1 indicate less preferred habitat.
