Field measurements are important for calibrating or validating hindcast simulations, from which design criteria are derived. An essential step of using field measurements is the quality control of the datasets and employing suitable analysis techniques. This requires a good understanding of the underlying physical processes and the instrumentation used to record the measurements.
OCG have experience in the quality control of raw field measurements of waves, winds and currents. We apply novel techniques such as machine learning and we also manually review key events within the measurements to ensure their suitability. The analysis of the data is performed using Wavelet, Stockwell and Hilbert-Huang Transforms in order to understand the time and frequency variation of field measurements.
This expertise was formed from many year experience working for large oil & gas companies as well as continual research in this area, as demonstrated in our publications.
