The observation of the sky was and still is absolutely essential to get an idea of the local situation. Despite having taken the time to improve my knowledge between and by reading all the books, articles and other documents concerning marine meteorology, I had to hold on to their reading. The data were the same, the analysis led to the same result of evolution of weather; the choice of the course was largely dependent on the navigation program cruises or regattas to stay in a general categorization.
In recent years, the number and quality of data has exploded. The sources have also increased: terrestrial data, marine data, data on the ground, in the air data, satellite data With the increase in computing power, weather numerical models have become more and more important, allowing significantly to increase the number of parameters used, to use models more sophisticated considering the morphology of the terrain and get results much faster from several weeks to a few hours now.
First, it is almost exclusively the racing boats that are equipped, I followed the evolution of this equipment used by competitors of major offshore races. The decision taken by the European Union to release all the data produced by public structures to everyone Open Data has largely contributed to the acceleration of access to many raw data or reworked for specific objectives by different sources regularly increasing.
In meteorology , numerical weather prediction NWP uses mathematical models of the atmosphere and oceans to predict the weather based on current weather conditions; these models are based on choice of primitive equations offering a close approximation of the behaviour of the real atmosphere.
Given the remoteness and wide geographical locations of NDBC buoys, the timely deployment and maintenance of these stations require careful planning and execution to minimize critical data loss that must be balanced against very real constraints related to budgets, weather, and resource availability.
For example, moored deep-ocean buoys usually require large discus hulls and sophisticated anchoring systems. Typically, buoy and C-MAN systems include observation of water temperature, wind and wave characteristics, and air pressure. Buoy platforms offer many opportunities to measure atmosphere and ocean characteristics, including, for example, sampling of atmospheric aerosols Sholkovitz et al.
Other sensors may prove useful on these platforms, including those capable of measuring solar radiation, fluxes of material across the air-sea interface, and upward looking sounders for inversion height, cloud droplets, and profiles of wind and temperature. Recent advances in sensor, buoy, and communications technologies will lead to lower costs and improve measurements capabilites. NDBC is evaluating acoustic anemometers that will be less prone to mechanical failure than the present propeller anenometers, and therefore reduce life-cycle costs.
Nevertheless, these sensors will extend the upper limit of operational wind-speed measurements. Prototype directional wave measurement systems based on simpler sensors and advanced digital signal processing have the potential to greatly reduce sensor costs. New ionomer foam 3-meter buoys are being introduced to increase reserve buoyancy and reduce vulnerability to vandalism. Compared to existing metal hulls, repair and refurbishment costs of the foam hulls will be lower.
Higher transmission rates through the Geostationary Observational Environment Satellite GOES system will lead to faster data dissemination and increase the amount of data transmitted. If additional capability is desired, low earth orbit satellites can be used, though at increased costs.
Finally, mariners will be able to hear the latest observations over the telephone because of computer voice generation technology tied into the Internet.
From there the data are distributed widely to public and private user groups in addition to the NWS. Data transmission from drifting buoys to POES and from POES to ground stations is restricted to when the satellites are within line of sight of the buoys. NDBC estimates buoy costs in buoy sets to take advantage of the economies of scale.
NDBC cost estimates further assume a fully funded existing infrastructure. Stationery Off. Matthews, H. Llewellyn Smith, and Great Britain. National Weather Service. Environmental Data Service, and United States. Fish and Wildlife Service, , by Richard J.
