Oceanweather Research

Oceanweather (OWI) serves the international shipping, offshore industry, and coastal engineering communities by developing long-term climatologies for operability and design criteria, as well as forecast applications in areas of offshore exploration/production and coastal development. The high-level technology of these systems flows from Oceanweather's research and development activity. Since its formation, Oceanweather has maintained a highly visible and productive research component, relative to the level of outside support it has received from U.S. and foreign government agencies and industry.

Detailed here are the core modeling and analysis techniques applied in OWI's work, with many developed in-house. To learn more about what makes Oceanweather unique in the metocean community, visit the Recent Publications page which details journal papers and major conference proceedings research staff have contributed.
