Data Service

We appreciate the weather forecast products from WetterWelt, as they are a very accurate and cost effective forecast solution for our towage projects. – BUGSIER

Forecast

WetterWelt provides weather forecasts world wide, for example for single spots, areas or along routes of sea passages.

All important weather forecast parameters such as wind direction, wind force, sea states (wave height, wave direction, wave period), air temperature and water temperature or air pressure are available.

  • Forecasts can be ordered individually. These forecasts are created by meteorologists.
  • Forecasts can also obtained (on your own) via METEO PILOT in the format GRIB data.

The Resolution of our forecast data is in general 0,4 degree over 5 days especially for coastal areas and 1,0 degree over max. 10 days hours, useful for long-distance voyages. The output data is covers three-hour or six-hour intervals. The data basis is updated twice a day.

Analysis and Reanalysis

Archived analysis data or reanalysis data in the format GRIB data or time series in spreadsheet format are also available.

Database of reanalyzed data (era interim with resolution 0,25 degree) includes a time period over the last 30 years. Archived weather model data (ECMWF, UKMO or GFS based) are available for last 5 years.

Also for these data all important weather parameters such as wind direction, wind force, sea states (wave height, wave direction, wave period), air temperature and water temperature or air pressure are available.

Offshore Forecast

WetterWelt provides weather forecasts world wide, for example for single spots, areas or along routes of sea passages.

Wind and Wave Climatologies

Based on archived analysis data or reanalysis data, various evaluations can be made. Anaysises of timeseries are available for single spots as well as for large areas.

For example, visualization by using scatter diagrams for different parameter are possible:

  • distribution of wave height levels for different sea areas
  • distribution of wind direction and wind force
  • distribution of wind force and wave height levels

All parameters can be evaluated in different combinations and for varying time periods. They can be broken down for any given monthly or seasonal time interval. In this way it becomes possible to plan routine or long-distance routes or to exclude sea areas that exceed the ship’s specific limits. This prevents risk of damage.

Tailored Statistical Analysis

Wetterwelt provides a magnitude of different tailored statistical analyses. Our data basis covers all areas world wide.

These data bases consist of reanalyzed data (era interim with resolution 0,25 degree), archived weather model data (ECMWF based) and measurements from various official WMO weather stations.

All important weather parameters such as wind direction, wind force, sea states (wave height, wave direction, wave period), air temperature and water temperature or air pressure are available. All parameters can be evaluated in different combinations and for varying time periods.

Reanalyzed data is available for a time period over the last 30 years, measured data can be provided for the last 15 years.

Percentile calculation is also possible, for example, in order to determine the distribution of probabilities of events and to determine the range with the highest occurrence probability of events.

Examples of tailored analyses:

for the shipping industry:

Wave scatter diagrams: visualization of the distribution of wave height levels for different sea areas. They can be broken down for any given monthly or seasonal time interval. In this way it becomes possible to plan routine or long-distance routes or to exclude sea areas that exceed the ship’s specific limits. This prevents risk of damage.

for the wind industry:
Distributions of wind direction and wind force to suggest favorable and unfavorable locations.

for Tourism:
Climatic diagrams of various weather stations like the distribution of temperature and rainfall over the year make location comparisons possible.

API Solutions

We can supply you with weather data to include into you own programs or apps with special API solutions (API stands for: application programming interface). Our highly qualified meteorological and computing teams make fulfilling your individual requirements, restrictions and specifications their mission.
