Coastal Dynamics Limited is capable of conducting rapid ecological assessments in a wide variety of ecosystems, whether marine or terrestrial.
DHI in collaboration with CDL has developed a 3D hydrodynamic forecast system for the region around Trinidad and Tobago. The operational system utilizes real-time meteorological forcing together with measured currents, and tidal forcings to develop boundary conditions as input to the model. The model then produces a 5 day forecast of the current speed and direction for the area of interest. This forecast model can then be applied to a variety of operational uses including the migration pathways and extent of potential spills. The operational system workflow is shown below
The oceanographic forecasting system produces two daily current forecasts covering the period up to 5 days ahead in time and is continuously being evaluated and improved based on historical performance metrics. In addition, the forecasting data has also proven to be useful for running sediment transport models to evaluate drill cuttings/mud dispersion and well capping activities in the region.
"With the current boom in offshore oil exploration activities in the Caribbean, the timing of this development could not have been better, and we are proud to continue delivering industry leading realtime forecasting and decision support system around the world." says Jesper Kjelds, Global Director of Business Development for DHI.
