ACE-1: Model BoM GASP MSL 48-hr Forecast (GIF)


The Australian Bureau of Meteorology (BoM) routinely produced Mean Sea Level (MSL) forecasts from its Global/Regional Assimilation Prognosis (GASP) model runs. Two model runs were produced daily (00 and 12 UTC). Model output were available from the BoM McIDAS system and the MSL 48-hour forecast charts were archived as GIF imagery. Pressure contours (isobars) were plotted every 4 mb.
