|Hindcast of Dynamic Processes of the Ocean and Coastal Areas of Europe|
|segunda-feira, 14 de junho de 2021|
Final HIPOCAS Workshop
in association with 29th International Conference on Coastal Engineering (ICCE 2004)
Laboratorio Nacional de Engenharia Civil, Avenida Brasil, Lisboa, 19th September 2004
The objective of the project was to obtain a 44-year (1958-01) hindcast of wind, wave, sea-level and current climatology for European waters and coastal seas for application in coastal and environmental decision processes.
Specific studies were made for the North Sea, North East Atlantic, Mediterranean Sea, Black Sea and Baltic Sea.
The global atmospheric re-analysis carried out by NCEP and NCAR was used as a starting point for limited area models.
The NCEP global data set and the new technique developed to obtain small scale analyses from the global re-analyses were used to produce a data set of homogeneous and high-resolution atmospheric data.
Sea-level, Current and Wave Data
The atmospheric data was used to force state-of-the-art wave models (WAM) and ocean circulation models (HAMSOM, M3D_UG and TELEMAC) in regional areas around Europe so as to produce climatic information on waves, sea levels, and currents in a very large extend of the European coast.
Remote Sensed Data
The available satellite data, including wind, wave and sea-level data, was collected and calibrated for the same areas with available measurements and will be used to be compared with the hindcast results, so as to yield some uncertainty measures related to the data.
Validation and Synthesis of the Data
All available measured data was used to verify the hindcast in order to assess the quality of the numerical data being produced.
A Climatological Atlas was produced displaying the spatial and temporal variability of relevant statistics of the data considered in the study.
