Metocean Consultancy Services

Woods Hole Groups metocean consultancy team conducts desk studies to characterize and quantify metocean conditions at specific client locations. We combine measured and modelled data sets with scientific knowledge and detailed statistical and extreme value analysis to derive design and operating criteria.

Our reports and data provide engineers with the basis for design of offshore or coastal infrastructure and the planning of safe and efficient offshore or coastal operations.

Metocean Measurement Services

Woods Hole Group undertakes metocean measurement programs on behalf of our clients to characterize the conditions at specific locations. We have experience operating internationally in coastal and offshore environments with water depths from 5m to 5,000m.

We combine our large inventory of metocean equipment with, detailed mooring design and over 30 years of experience in measurement  services to collect high quality data with exceptional data return.

Woods Hole Group typically provides measurements of waves, currents, seawater properties, wind and other meteorological parameters and can also cover environmental measurements. Programs can range from one month to multi-year in duration.

offshore platform

Operational Metocean
Forecasting Services

Woods Hole Group customers of offshore operations depend on accurate ocean forecasts.

To pinpoint where and when a 4-knot current may impact a deepwater facility or optimize cross-continent ocean voyages, we deploy ocean drifters from planes, track them with satellites, survey directly from vessels in the field, and refine forecasts using data-assimilating numerical models.

Our expert meteorologists and oceanographers distill the complex data, and serve essential information directly to customers 24/7 via interactive metocean mapping graphical user interface.
