Te Wai Pounamu Weather and Climate Forecasting
This poster shows a selection of indicators used by Māori across Te Wai Pounamu to forecast weather and climate. While the indicators are of most use in their respective localities, many of them are shared by hapū and iwi in other locations. Often more than one indicator is used to forecast for the day, month, or season ahead. It is hoped this work will contribute to reconnecting youth with their environment and making the most of all available knowledge to manage the risks associated with changing weather and climate conditions.
Full A1 size version available for $5 post and packaging.
