Generation of wave, wind and current database

Generation of wave, wind and current database

The generation of databases on marine variables is the basis for the analysis of climate dynamics and climate change. At IH Cantabria each database generation involves a methodological process that includes, in addition to the numerical simulation of the target variable, the validation of the simulations using instrumental measurements, calibration of the databases and characterization of the simulated climate.

That is why our wave, sea level and wind data bases have three important characteristics: quality, availability close to shore and the length of the available time series,  fundamental to the study of historical changes observed or of future climate evolution.

IH is also developing new techniques to generate databases for future climate projections with sufficient spatial resolution for regional analysis.
