GRIB Tidal Currents for Chesapeake Bay

Posted by Penny Haire on 4 June 2021 12:31:51 PM

We are very pleased to release a new model of Chesapeake Bay in time for the Annapolis to Newport Race! Sourced from NOAA the model covers the entire bay in incredible detail, showing for the first time the complexity of the currents everywhere in the Bay from Annapolis to Cape Charles, including the Potomac River.

What is Sea Level Data & How is it Collected?

Posted by Penny Haire on 7 April 2021 11:42:27 AM

The creation of ocean current maps depend on the measurement of sea level, which is the base level for measuring elevation and depth on Earth.

The Currents in Singapore Strait are Extremely Complex. Here's Why.

Posted by Penny Haire on 25 January 2021 2:49:35 PM

At 16km wide, and stretching 105km long between the Strait of Malacca and the Karimata Strait, the Singapore Strait is a crucial gateway between Asia and Europe. Due to the high number of ships transiting the area, the Singapore Strait can become incredibly congested and requires a tight traffic management system to ensure that vessels are coming into port at the right time, every time.

Coastal or Ocean Currents -  Do you know the difference?

Posted by Penny Haire on 27 October 2020 6:25:43 AM

Whatever craft you sail, currents can have a significant effect on your transit times across an ocean, particularly where the major ocean currents such as the Kuroshio and Gulf Stream flow. However, the beginning and end of most ocean crossings transit coastal waters, where there can be strong tides. Understanding how and why each type of current forms and where they occur increases the likelihood of a successful passage - whether it be a 'just-in-time' arrival on a ship or a podium finish in a yacht race.

Navigating the Strait of Gibraltar Tides

Posted by Penny Haire on 27 August 2020 3:10:10 PM


Suppose you're familiar with oceanography and some of the more treacherous shipping routes of the world. In that case, you'll know about the challenges for the shipping industry that the Strait of Gibraltar poses. This narrow passage that connects the Atlantic Ocean to the Mediterranean Sea has many elements that contribute to the complexity of tides and currents in this area, and this article explores how it all works.

Singapore Malacca Straits model upgraded to include tidal surge

Posted by Penny Haire on 19 May 2015 12:16:00 PM

 

It’s been three years since we released the Singapore and Malacca Straits 800m high resolution tidal model. This model benefits vessels using route and speed optimisation systems in this busy stretch of water by taking advantage of accurate tidal speed, direction and height data to create bunkerage savings..
