Using state-of-the-art statistical methods, those reports are suitable for designing fixed or floating structures, wind farm, well construction, maritime navigation, etc.
A worldwide climatological database is processed from global to high-resolution output thanks to in-house powerful computing calculation. Data processing is also combined with satellite data and observational measurement series from available weather stations to produce accurate and reliable studies.
Cyclone track forecasting and squall warning
Accurate tropical weather forecasts will help when extreme conditions generated by the passage of a cyclone may lead to adopt particular safety procedures in order to face the storm. The precise knowledge of the development and movement of the tropical phenomena, which we offer with this service, is an indispensable support tool for decision-making within the framework of the application of these procedures.
