Meteorology & Oceanography (MetOcean)

Polytec has long experience in providing services within the field of oceanography and meteorology, tailored to meet the requirements of our customers.

Through our specialized department in analyzes of extreme atmospheric and oceanographic conditions, we supply services that are used in the assessment of the suitability of offshore and land based constructions, including offshore platforms, fish farms and wind turbines.

Polytec is also deeply engaged in operational analyzes. We provide statistical information of meteorological and oceanographic variables such as wind, waves, currents and temperature, as well as accurate forecast of the ocean bottom temperature, to be used as input to, for instance, gas flow simulations.

Data Analysis

Polytec has a long history in delivering a wide range of different analysis.

Computer Modeling

Using different modeling tools Polytec’s MetOcean group can estimate near shore wave fields and forecast ocean surface waves. If large areas need to be studied direct observations are difficult. As an alternative Polytec employ modeling efforts using different ocean models. Wind fields over large areas can similarly be modeled using numerical weather models.

Furthermore Polytec has contributed to the development of a model which with a high degree of accuracy calculates ocean temperature at the sea floor in real time and also forecasts the future.
