was the first definitive design metocean study for
Offshore Brazil in the Campos and contiguous Santos
and Espirito basins. This JIP (Joint Industry Project)
applied a tri-nested wave model approach to hindcast
48 storms and 11 continuous years for determining
extreme and operational criteria.
BOMOSHU JIP is an update of the BOMOS JIP storm hindcasts
that accounts for over an additional decade of history,
utilizes a large body of metocean measurements acquired
since BOMOS for model validation, applies third-generation
wave physics on a finer grid, and develops a new suite
of wind and wave extremes.
hindcasts were extensively validated using proprietary
wind, wave, and spectra data obtained by several JIP
South America Brazil (SAB) is a bulk product available
only to BOMOSHU participants that addresses the need
for a continuous wind and wave hindcast. It is available
for the southern portion of the 7 km grid (17.5-27.5
S) from January 1990 - June 2015.
