Metocean Design Basis (MDB)

A metocean design basis is the combined information from detailed analyzes of meteorological and oceanographic variables. The report is the basis for design and planning of operations on offshore and land based installations. Examples of data that are subject to statistical analyzes in a metocean design basis are wind, wave, current, temperature and salinity data. In addition, ocean models are used to complement the in situ observations.
