Multivariate Ocean Climate Index updated

Farallon Institute has issued the latest update for the Multivariate Ocean Climate Index (MOCI), and it is now up-to-date through December 2018.  The MOCI synthesizes data about the physical conditions of the coastal ocean in California to give a single, generalized representation about its current state.  In 2018, MOCI has had neutral values, neither exceptionally high nor low, though Southern California had a high point for the fall (see below).  Read more about and access the MOCI data here.
