Solution details




Determine the effects of weather on your operations and assets with the Sofar Ocean Marine Weather Layer. Sofar Ocean offers global wave and marine weather forecasts that leverage real-time, open-ocean observations from hundreds of Spotter drifter buoys. While other marine weather providers merely package and re-format publicly available data to create their forecasts, the Sofar model stands out by assimilating observations from our proprietary fleet of sensors to improve forecast skill of significant wave height by [38%, and up to 45% for other parameters]. The Sofar global numerical weather models run the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration’s (NOAA) WAVEWATCH III wave/current fields and are forced with wind fields from the European Centre for Medium-Range Weather Forecasts (ECMWF).
