Databases

Databases

BMT’s databases form a ready source of affordable data in offshore areas as well as providing reliable boundary conditions for our coastal modelling.

BMT holds the following global databases:

  • satellite database of wind and wave data (for calibration and validation purposes);
  • database of tidal constituents derived from satellite observations;
  • database of tidal currents derived from gradients in tidal elevation and local bathymetry on a resolution of up to 2” depending on the location;
  • database of ocean currents at multiple depth levels from public sources;
  • hindcast spectral wave data on a grid of resolution 30’ with regional databases with resolution as good as 5’;
  • hindcast wind data at 10m elevation with resolution 30’;
