We are participating in the IMarEST Metocean Awareness Course on 28-30 October in Kuala Lumpur, Malaysia. Dr. Kim P Jakobsen (Head of Coastal and Marine Department, Kota Kinabalu, DHI Malaysia) is one of the speakers at the event. He will cover topics such as ‘Satellite Measurements’ and ‘Numerical Modelling of Waves, Currents and Water Levels’.
For all offshore industries, the effects of meteorology and oceanography (Metocean) have a major impact on design and operations. User of Metocean information must be aware of the implications that the weather, waves, currents and water levels can have on their operations or design work. If they don’t, then things can go wrong with serious health and safety and economic consequences.
The Metocean Course is aimed at those who need to have a greater understanding of Metocean conditions worldwide and how they might impact the effectiveness of their work. The course format will include a mixture of short presentations presented by expert speakers in this field and interactive workshop sessions including a group case study exercise. Delegates will receive a comprehensive course manual on attendance.
- Learning why meteorology and oceanography (Metocean) is important to the offshore oil & gas and marine renewables industries
- Learning how to engage internal and external stakeholders in Metocean matters
- Exploring how the regional Metocean conditions around the world impact operations and engineering design
- Examining how Metocean statistics are presented and how they are used
- Understanding how weather and ocean forecasts are derived
- Identifying the process for obtaining key Metocean deliverables
