A 33-year atmospheric hindcast for New Zealand was completed in May 2012, and high resolution...
A web-based tool that provides marine managers and operational personnel with high-resolution and sitespecific weather data and forecast information is presented and described.
MetOceanView (MOV) an operations planning tool and platform, uses the latest ocean and atmospheric forecast models and customised at the most appropriate scale for a port or harbour situation.
Transformation of waves along the shipping approaches and into the entrance region is captured, along with the coastal currents, water levels and winds.
With bathymetry data for calibration, long wave surging at the berths can also be predicted with
good accuracy. Integration of real-time measured waves, long waves and winds through MOV allows quality forecast accuracy, enabling short range weather trends to be further monitored.
