The Government will provide $1.4 million over four years to enable the Bureau of Meteorology to host commercial advertising on its website on an ongoing basis. This measure follows the previously announced advertising trial. The introduction of website advertising was one of the options identified in the Review of the Bureau of Meteorology's capacity to respond to future extreme weather and natural disaster events and to provide seasonal forecasting services. Revenue from this measure will partially offset the costs of the services provided by the Bureau.

In order to protect the Bureau's position in any negotiations with potential advertisers, the estimated revenue from this measure is not for publication.
