is Oceanweather's comprehensive metocean study
of the Gulf. As such, it represents Oceanweather's long history of regional
specific studies carried out in this basin within
the past 35 years. Such studies have essentially
set the standard for metocean design data.
utilizes hindcast models of high resolution and powerful
physics. The wind
hindcasts were developed using Oceanweather's
latest and most refined surface wind field kinematic
reanalysis technology. The winds are integrated on a basin-wide
fine mesh ocean response wave model nested
within coarser grid systems covering the Gulf of Oman
and the Arabian Sea. Currents and 2-D surge have been
modeled for the storm and continuous hindcasts on fine mesh
All hindcast time series are available in ASCII format.
historical storm population of PERGOS-2 consists of
165 events spanning the years 1961-2017.
The continuous hindcast covers multiple decades
(1979-2017) to ensure that it simulates the recent
and current climate.
