  • Hurricane Michael (2018) Fast Response

    In order to support hurricane recovery activities and to improve future resiliency, Oceanweather (OWI) is in the process of producing a “fast-response” hindcast for Hurricane Michael (2018). A detailed reanalysis of the conditions experienced in a land-falling hurricane are required in any ocean response modeling to provide critical guidance on the extent of the storm wave and surge inundation. OWI can provide wind, pressure, and/or OWI’s standard wave fields for this recent event.

    As experts in providing meteorological forcing for ocean response modeling of extreme wind, wave and storm surge events, OWI has a long history of quickly responding to the need for hindcasts of recent or active tropical events. This expertise is also applied in long-term operational and storm hindcasts in public and private sectors around the globe.

  • Announcing: BOMOS-2 Joint Industry Project

    Oceanweather (OWI) are pleased to announce plans for a new Joint Industry Project (JIP) called Brazil Offshore Meteorological and Oceanographic Study - 2 (BOMOS-2). BOMOS-2 will serve as a follow-up to the previous similar JIPs: BOMOS and BOMOSHU. The JIP will include continous operational and storm hindcasts providing OWI’s standard wind and wave parameters for coastal regions of Brazil including Paraíba, Pernambuco, Alagoas, Sergipe, Bahia, Espírito Santo, Rio de Janeiro and São Paulo.

  • Hurricane Florence (2018)

    Oceanweather (OWI) has a long history of quickly responding to the need for hindcasts of recent or active tropical events. A detailed reanalysis of the conditions experienced in a land-falling hurricane are required in any ocean response modeling to provide critical guidance on the extent of the storm wave and surge inundation. Modeling efforts using OWI forcing are applied in hurricane recovery activities to support those affected, and in studies to improve future resiliency.

    OWI has produced a “fast-response” hindcast for Hurricane Florence (2018). Users of this data may elect to receive wind, pressure and/or OWI’s standard wave fields. The domain will include two default grids: a coarse 0.25 degree grid covering 55W-99W, 5N-47N and a high resolution 0.05 degree grid covering the specific areas affected by the storm.
