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.


  • Evaluating the ERA5 Reanalysis at the 2018 WISE Conference

    An evaluation of the latest European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF) reanalysis, known as the ERA5, is represented at the 2018 Waves in Shallow Environments (WISE) conference in Tel Aviv, Israel. Oceanweather (OWI) compared the ERA5 dataset against altimeter and buoy measurements from 2010 – 2016 using the 10-meter winds and significant wave height with focus on the wind forcing in the strongest tropical and extra-tropical events. Wind forcing has been shown to be a dominant source of error when applied in ocean response models for describing the peak events that drive design and operability in offshore and coastal applications and this informs potential users of deficiencies within the dataset.

  • Oceanweather at 2018 ADCIRC User's Group Meeting at the NOAA Center for Weather and Climate Prediction in College Park, MD

    Oceanweather (OWI) presented a replacement for their ADCIRC NWS-12 wind and pressure (also known as WIN/PRE) input format at the 2018 ADCIRC User's group meeting. This new format (NWS-13) is based on NetCDF4, and supports arbitrary numbers of sub-grid overlays, sophisticated grid descriptions and storm-following moving grids matched with independent temporal descriptions to ensure sufficient spatial and temporal fidelity to capture the complex dynamics of a specific storm or set of storms.

  • Oceanweather to Exhibit at Oceanology International in London (UK) March 13-15, 2018

    Oceanweather are excited to once again exhibit at Oceanology International in London. This will be the eighth time as an exhibitor to the conference after the company's founder, Dr. Vincent Cardone, was presented with the Oceanology International Lifetime Achievement Award in 2002. Please visit us at stand A20 at the Excel Center London.
