Metocean data analysis

Metocean data Analysis

Our team of experts has a  profound knowledge of the regional ocean processes and have well-established methodologies for metocean data analysis for offshore operations and engineering.

Our capability is based on a broad range of project experience, coupled with a thorough understanding of the metocean data requirements and analysis techniques required for coastal and offshore developments.

Metocean data Analysis

Using data mining techniques on our long-term hindcast, statistics can be examined at monthly, seasonally or yearly scale within the entire model domain. Additionally, anomalies can also be quantified.

Extracted site specific data can be used for time-series analysis techniques such as joint probability or extreme value analysis. These data can also be used for time-domain analysis for analytical techniques such as persistence and Sequenced Downtime Analysis (SDA). We have the expertise to provide the right kind of data analysis for your project.

Some of the standard analysis outputs we produce for waves, winds and currents are:

  • Metocean design criteria – return period values and extremes
  • Persistence exceedence and non-exceedence matrices
  • Joint probability distributions
  • Tidal analysis and predictions
  • Time domain and zero-down-crossing analyses
  • Spectral and frequency domain analyses
  • Wavelet analyses

Services for offshore engineering:

  • Metocean data reports, including modeling of waves, winds and currents
  • Environmental design criteria for platforms, pipeline and floating facilities
  • Ambient and extreme metocean statistics for operations and construction
  • (Tropical) storm analysis
  • Marine data collection and data analyses
  • Estuarine hydrodynamics
  • Oil spill fate and produced water discharge modelling
  • Thermal and other water column properties
  • Marine growth and benthic ecology assessments
