BORE (Beaufort Sea Ocean Response Extremes) is an Oceanweather Joint Industry Project (JIP) originally launched in October 2004 for a complete specification of metocean design data for offshore and nearshore facilities for new developments planned in the U.S. sector of the Beaufort Sea. The specifications include extreme wind, wave, current and water level (storm surge) criteria.
was applied in this study in a coupled tri-nest mode
to address so-called GLOBAL, BASIN and REGIONAL spatial
scales. The global scale is included by referring
to OWI's pre-computed GROW2000 product, which provides
boundary conditions in the form of time series of
directional spectra at the western boundary of the
BASIN scale model in the Bering Sea.
