Metocean Surveys

SRSL specialise in using cutting-edge science and technology to design robust MetOcean surveys (meteorological and oceanographic). To complement our ship-based measurements, we use smart autonomous platforms, which allow real-time communication with the survey-team.
We deliver a wide range of MetOcean services from oceanographic surveys to modelling of coastal and offshore hydrography.

What Are MetOcean Surveys?

To be safe, efficient, and environmentally sound, any marine development project requires information about water depth, the shape of the sea floor and coastline, the location of possible obstructions, and other physical features of water bodies, such as their structure and movement. Oceanographic surveying is the primary method of obtaining this baseline data. Oceanographic surveys can provide characterisation of a specific offshore site or a more regional marine environment. MetOcean surveys combine oceanographic with meteorological components.

Metocean Surveys from SRSL

SRSL oceanographers are experts in making and interpreting measurements of turbulence, mixing and other complex dynamical processes in environments ranging from the deep ocean to high-energy coastal waters. We use state-of-the-art equipment and instrumentation, including Autonomous Underwater Vehicles (AUVs), free-falling profilers, automated profiling floats and autonomous gliders, as well as more traditional mooring deployments and vessel-based surveys. Our measurements can be used to validate in-house numerical models, produced to meet client needs at varying levels of resolution.

The SRSL technology team can provide the design, development and deployment of bespoke real-time oceanographic monitoring solutions, which provide invaluable operational data for marine installations such as renewables energy devices and seabed cable installations. Our service packages include survey design, planning and management, as well as in-house data-processing, analysis and high quality technical reporting.
