About MetOcean Studies Research
Forecasting Current Marine Data Software

Oceanweather Inc. is a specialized metocean consulting firm serving the coastal and ocean engineering communities since 1977. Our approach is to develop and apply high-level technology to satisfy practical requirements in marine meteorology, ocean wave and current specification, ocean engineering, and statistics of environmental data. Our services include atmospheric/oceanographic research, site-specific consulting/modeling, operational forecasting, and generation of long-term climatologies for operability and design in the marine environment.


  • Special Session Honoring Vincent J. Cardone at AMS

    The American Meteorological Society (AMS) will sponsor a special session in honor of Oceanweather’s founder, Vincent J. Cardone, at the 18th Symposium on the Coastal Environment to be held at the AMS 100th Annual Meeting this January in 2020 held in Boston, MA.

    December 2019 marks the 50th anniversary of the landmark doctoral dissertation by Dr. Vincent J. Cardone at New York University (NYU) entitled “Specification of the Wind Distribution in the Marine Boundary Layer for Wave Forecasting”. Dr. Cardone introduced the first contemporary marine planetary boundary layer (PBL) model, and showed how it could be applied to the practical problem of specification of marine surface wind fields to produce real-time wave forecasting. Submissions are invited for presentations that focus on the historical perspective of wind/wave forecasting and hindcasting, including wave modeling advancements and their impact on the coastal environment building on top of Dr. Cardone’s landmark work over the past 50 years.

  • SciPy 2019 in Austin, TX

    SciPy 2019, the 18th annual Scientific Computing with Python conference, was held over July 8-14 in the heart of Austin at the University of Texas. The annual SciPy Conference brings together over 800 participants from industry, academia, and government to showcase their latest projects, learn from skilled users and developers, and collaborate on code development. The schedule included tutorials, developer “sprints”, a poster session, plenary talks and mini-symposia.

    The conference showcased the incredible possibilities in scientific computing that are being made reality when disparate communities work together in open and accessible ways. Among many amazing talks it was reinforced how this applies from institutional to inter-personal scales, and even in actual code that we use and collaborate on.

  • 2019 ADCIRC User's Group Meeting

    Oceanweather (OWI) was well represented at the 2019 Advanced Circulation Model (ADCIRC) User’s Group Meeting held at the US Army Corps Engineer Research and Development Center (ERDC) Coastal and Hydraulics Lab (CHL) over May 20-21, 2019 in Vicksburg, MS. Several of the talks applied OWI atmospheric forcing to produce detailed ocean storm surge and tidal simulations. OWI both implements the ADCIRC model for their hindcast products such as GOMOS, GROW-FINE Caribbean-2 (GFC-2), and GROW-FINE East Coast (GF-EC) as well participates as a collaborating member of the ADCIRC community. Recent collaboration efforts published in JGR: Oceans and Ocean Modelling are detailed on our Recent Publications page.
