Wind-Water Level Analysis
Marine Weather & Climate created algorithms that analyze the interaction between wind vectors and water levels at specific locations. This graph plots water levels (color) related to 4-hour cumulative wind vectors at Pensacola, Florida. We found that persistent SE winds raise water levels > 6 inches above predicted astronomical tide, whereas persistent NW winds often drop water levels 2-6 inches below normal. Such information is useful for predicting actual water levels in harbors, ports and bays.
Extreme Weather Field Work Contracts
Insurance litigation often gets messy following extreme weather events. Was the water damage in a home caused by storm surge entering at ground level or rain coming through the hole in the roof? Consider making a contract with Marine Weather & Climate to obtain field services this hurricane season. These contracts will place a qualified scientist in a coastal community to document wind, rain and surge impacts during the storm.
Risk Assessment Reports
Our Risk Assessment Reports provide a comprehensive overview of site-specific risk, including historical data, statistical estimates and geospatial analysis. We have worked on such reports for everyone from individual property owners to nuclear power plant sites.
Extreme Water Level Analysis
Marine Weather & Climate specializes in data-driven analysis of extreme events, This graph estimates the 100-year storm surge at South Padre Island, Texas, slightly exceeds 12 ft, based on water level observations since 1900.
