Variability analysis

Variability analysis

IH Cantabria has a vast amount of knowledge in the field of statistical analysis of environmental variables for many different types of studies: risk analysis; infrastructure life-cycle including pre-design, design, feasability, repairs and maintenance; or climate change. IH Cantabria is able to provide the research and technical background necessary to face many of the new challenges arising in this field.   This is especially true when looking at the continually increasing amount of information available on the variables affecting the marine and coastal environment, both instrumental data from buoys, meteorological stations, cameras, satellites, etc as wella s numerical reanalysis data which require special methodologies and allow including all the available information.

To this effect, IH Cantabria has participated in many different projects involving the statistical characterization of of environmental variables and the analysisi of their variability to be applied to differents fields:

  1. energetic exploitation of coastal resources and their optimization,
  2. climatic characterization of the marine physical environment,
  3. prevention and response modelling for spills in port, coastal and transitional waters,
  4. short, mid and longterm morphodynamic beach evolution,
  5. climate change effects on the coast,
  6. design of coastal infrastructures and wave interaction studies.
