  • Wave Climate Investigations

Our industry-proven wavefield analysis tools include a premier sea and swell partitioning technology with nearly 3 decades of development and testing by the offshore community. Coupled with our high-performance hindcast modeling technology allows us to help you with:

  • Site assessments

  • Wave climate descriptions

  • Extreme wave computations

  • Wave breaking studies

  • Engineering design (fit) parameters

  • Model  & instrument validations

  • Wave data management

Our exclusive modeling suite includes innovative wave data assimilation algorithms for the most accurate assessments available. 

Site-specific analysis products include:

  • Long-term data-enhanced hindcasts 

  • Severe storm reconstructions

  • Wind, wave current and water level extremes

  • Wave breaking/surf heights 

  • Nearshore wave transformation

  • Coastal storm surge
