About Research Forecasting MetOcean Studies News Current Marine Data








ODS is a display and analysis program used to view forecasts produced from Oceanweather's global and regional forecast models. It is primarily used by offshore operators who require dedicated marine forecasting support. Dial-up and Internet communications options are built into the ODS program and can be setup to automatically download and display the latest forecasts. All forecast products are sent as highly compressed data files to keep communication costs low which is important for many offshore operators.

ODS is designed to present all applicable marine data in a easy-to-use interface to assist offshore operators in making weather dependent decisions. Forecasts from any of Oceanweather's global or regional forecast models can be used as input to the ODS program. Operators in locations where tropical systems are important are encouraged to visit Oceanweather's CYCLOPS information page which provides an advanced forecast service for tropical-threat evacuation and decision making.
