  • SEAFINE-2 Availability

    Oceanweather Inc. (OWI) is pleased to announce the availability of our second-generation South East Asia Fine hindcast (SEAFINE-2) using new wind forcing and a unified grid setup for the period 2015-2019. This hindcast includes a continuous hindcast as well as detailed modeling of all South China Sea (SCS) tropical cyclones and monsoon events.

    The hindcast effort includes the analysis and detailed modeling of all tropical cyclones in the SCS from 2015-2019 as well as reanalysis of significant Southwest and Northeast monsoon events. The hindcast has been extensively validated using industry collected measurements as well as publicly available buoys and data from satellite based altimeter, radiometer, and scatterometer observations.

  • Forecasting Hurricane Laura Winds with OWITropPBL

    Modeling tropical cyclone winds with accuracy is a critical step in generating proper wave and surge responses. High resolution tropical wind solutions that can yield eyewall details will provide more accurate surface forcing fields for downstream ocean response modeling systems. Global forecast (and hindcast) models are limited in spatial scale resolution and physics to simulate the detailed wind fields needed for ocean response models. Oceanweather (OWI) runs a proprietary in-house tropical planetary boundary layer model (OWITropPBL) which produces detailed high resolution winds that can be integrated into global or regional surface forecast wind fields.
