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 March 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.  Last year MOCI mostly returned to “normal” range of values, but is still on the warm/unproductive side in southern California (see below).  Read more about and access the MOCI data here.
