On-Line Wind and Wave Statistics

On-Line Wind and Wave Statistics

From preparing a bid through to exploration and planning, metocean information that is up-to-date and easily obtainable is vital to marine operations.

BMT ARGOSS runs an online subscription service – waveclimate.com – that provides a snapshot of the offshore and coastal metocean climate globally. The information is based on validated wave model computations and satellite measurements. Available by annual subscription or on a pre-paid basis, the service offers both frequent and incidental users good, value-for-money information on wind and wave conditions.

Our metocean operability statistics support:

  • Exploration
  • Operations planning
  • Weather risk calculations
  • Operability and downtime assessment
  • Feasibility studies

Wind and wave information includes:

  • Monthly distributions for wind and waves
  • 2D scatter distributions (Hs, Tp, Tz, wind speed and directionality)
  • 3D scatter distributions (Hs, Tp, Tz, wind speed and directionality)
  • Wind and wave roses
  • Persistence analysis for operability assessment
  • Basic wind and wave parameter time series

Please note: Users should always consider whether a more extensive appraisal is appropriate, in which case our metocean specialists can assist.
