  • GROW-FINE East Coast (GF-EC) Release

    Oceanweather are pleased to announce the completion of the updated GROW-FINE East Coast (GF-EC) wind, wave, and hydrodynamic hindcast covering the US Atlantic Ocean coastline. Winds and waves were modeled on a nested set of grids with a resolution of 5.6km on the finest grid, and were run in a continuous operational period for years 1979-2017, incorporating overlapping reanalyzed tropical systems. Separate storm hindcasts of significant tropical (1924-2017) and extra-tropical (1957-2017) storms have also been produced as part of the project using a finer archive timestep. In addition to wind and wave parameters, the tropical storm hindcasts contain water surface elevation and 2D depth-averaged velocity variables generated by the state of the art ADCIRC numerical model using OWI’s lightweight version of the NOAA operational HSOFS mesh (HSOFSR), with output archived on the same grid points as the winds and waves.

  • PERGOS2 Release

    Oceanweather are pleased to announce the completion of the Gulf region PERGOS-2 hindcast. This update to the PERGOS hindcast has been run on a finer mesh over the years 1961-2017 (for storm hindcasts) and 1979-2017 (for the continuous operational hindcast). As with the original PERGOS, hydrodynamic variables are contained in the hindcast along with winds and waves.

  • GOMOS2017 Release

    Oceanweather are pleased to announce an update to GOMOS (Gulf of Mexico Oceanographic Study) for the years 2015-2017 in a version of the hindcast called GOMOS2017. In addition to these three (3) years, new variables Wind Gusts and Mean Zero-Crossing Period (TZ) will be included in the hindcast.

    For further information on the costs associated with updating your GOMOS hindcast using GOMOS2017 results please contact Erin Harris via email at erinh@oceanweather.com.
