  • Data Intensive Astronomy
  • Translation and Impact

Project Details

One of ICRAR-UWAs successful translation and impact projects has been working with The Ocean Institute to provide corrections to The Bureau of Meteorology forecasts for the North West Shelf. This project aims to take this approach and apply it to buoy data collected from the SW of Western Australia and predict the wave heights at Perth beaches.
Using buoys in the open ocean we will get 2D wave energy spectral data to predict the wave height at Perth beaches
