Objective

Metocean analysis for two locations offshore the Iberian Peninsula

Scope

  • Environmental data source collection from experimental campaigns and numerical models:
  • - Experimental data
          o Currents: From IEO through SeaDataNet Server (Pan-European Infrastructure for Ocean & Marine Data Management)
          o Currents: From NCODA OpeNDaP server. Data base for the HYCOM Model
          o Wind & Waves: From WANA network, property of Puertos del Estado de España
    - Numerical models
          o Currents: HYCOM (HYBrid Coordinate Ocean Model)
          o Waves: WAM model
          o Wind: HYRLAM model

  • Current analyses
  • - Monthly, annual, seasonal and all data scatter diagrams of current velocity vs direction at different depths. Data coming from HYCOM and IEO
    - Monthly, annual, seasonal and all data current roses at different depths. Data coming from HYCOM and IEO
    - Annual, seasonal and all data current profiles tables and graphs showing the mean velocity, mean of the highest third, mean of the highest tenth, and maximum. Data coming from HYCOM and IEO
    - Annual, seasonal and all data extreme current tables for 1, 10, 20, 50 and 100 years return period and their corresponding profiles. Data coming from HYCOM and IEO
    - Comparison of numerical data from HYCOM with experimental data from IEO

  • Waves analyses
  • - Annual, seasonal, and all data scatter diagrams of significant wave height-period and significant wave height-direction for combined sea, wind sea and swell
    - Annual, seasonal, and all data wave roses for combined sea, wind sea and swell
    - Annual, seasonal, and all data extreme wave height tables for return periods 1, 10, 20, 50 and 100 years
    - Basic statistics and quantile graphs and tables

  • Wind analyses
  • - Annual, seasonal, and all data scatter diagrams of wind speed-direction
    - Annual, seasonal, and all data wind roses
    - Basic statistics and quantile graphs and tables
