    • Pronóstico Numérico de Olas (SMN)

      La altura significativa se infiere en el modelo a partir de la energía total de las olas. Se asemeja a la altura característica que un observador experimentado estima visualmente en un campo de olas y es la medida representativa del campo más utilizada. Sin embargo, se debe destacar que las olas individuales pueden exceder la altura significativa (idealmente algo más del 13 % de las olas) y aun en condiciones normales, alguna ola individual podría duplicar esta altura. La dirección del pico es la dirección media en las frecuencias que contienen la máxima energía y es cercana, en general, a la dirección del máximo. El período del pico de energía o período dominante es el correspondiente a las frecuencias que contienen la máxima energía. Todas las alturas se expresan en metros. Oceanos Australes: Altura significativa - Oceano Atlántico: Altura significativa y también Altura de olas de mar de viento.

    • Hong Kong Tidal Stream Prediction System

      The tidal prediction made by Hong Kong Tidal Stream Prediction System is based on the tidal components generated from the updated Hong Kong Tidal Atlas model. These predictions will deviate from the actual conditions in the field since temporal and localised meteorological effects and non-tidal flow variations could not be taken into acco According to the comparison of the predicted data with the actual field observed data, the average difference in current peak magnitude ranges from 0.03 m/s to 0.21 m/s, while the average phase difference in peak velocity ranges from 50 minutes to 75 minutes.

    • Marées : fascicules 1 et 2

      Cours sur la marée par Gilles Bessero (SHOM, 1985). L'étude de la marée s'appuie sur sa régularité. Cette régularité est directement liée à celle des actions de la lune et du soleil pour déduire d'observations en un lieu donné des prédictions valables en ce lieu et dans son voisinage immédiat. C'est cet aspect qui constitue l'objet principal de ce cours; quelques notions sur la propagation des ondes de marée seront examinées dans les dernières leçons. On étudiera également les variations du niveau marin dues à d'autres influences que celles des astres, variations que l'on peut regrouper sous le nom de "niveau moyen".

      Cette application permet de calculer la marée dans les principaux ports du monde et pour tous les ports, principaux et secondaires, de France métropolitaine. Ces prédictions sont calculées avec une précision de quelques centimètres pour les hauteurs et quelques minutes pour les heures; la hauteur d'eau réelle peut toutefois s'écarter notablement de la prédiction (jusqu'à plusieurs dizaines de centimètres) en raison notamment des variations du niveau de la mer dues aux perturbations atmosphériques. La référence de hauteur utilisée pour les prédictions de marée est le zéro des cartes qui, en général, correspond approximativement au niveau des plus basses mers - LAT : Lowest Astronomical Tide pour les Anglais (HTML).

    • Météorologie générale et maritime

      Le manuel "Météorologie générale et maritime" rassemble les connaissances nécessaires à une bonne formation des navigateurs professionnels et amateurs. Conçu par des ingénieurs-prévisionnistes de Météo-France à l'intention des élèves officiers de la Marine nationale, l'ouvrage ne néglige ni les aspects théoriques, ni la pratique. Les phénomènes météorologiques sont décrits autant avec des mots qu'à l'aide de formules mathématiques. L'ouvrage s’organise en trois parties : la première, composée de six chapitres, présente les paramètres atmosphériques et les lois qui les régissent, la deuxième développe la représentation des paramètres météorologiques sur un diagramme thermodynamique, la formation des brouillards et des nuages et la notion de masse d'air, la troisième, le corps de l’ouvrage, aborde la circulation générale, la météorologie des régions tempérées, tropicales et polaires et les phénomènes locaux (J.-Y Le Vourc'h, C. Fons et M. Le Stum, ENM, 2001).

    • Les tempêtes, les dépressions : comment elles se forment, comment elles évoluent

      Idées actuelles sur les perturbations aux latitudes tempérées. Si vous pensez qu’une dépression apparait à chaque rencontre d’air chaud et d’air froid, ce texte est pour vous. En effet ce document présente les différences entre la classique théorie norvégienne des perturbations (front polaire) et les conceptions actuelles de la météorologie dynamique des latitudes tempérées. Il s'adresse à ceux que l ’évolution du temps intéresse ou intrigue. Les idées sont exposées sans recours aux mathématiques (A. Joly, ENM, 1992).

    • Connaissances de base sur la prévision des vagues

      Objectifs généraux de l'ouvrage : 1) utiliser les différents moyens actuels d'observation météo-océanographique pour quantifier les caractéristiques des vagues et houles en un point donné; 2) réaliser une prévision de vagues destinée à des usagers de la Météorologie, à partir de l'ensemble des documents d'exploitation disponibles dans un centre météorologique. Cette prévision devra pouvoir être présentée sous forme d'exposé verbal, et condensée pour être insérée dans un bulletin de prévision; 3) exposer et justifier cette prévision devant un usager de la Météorologie, voire devant un météorologiste; 4) énoncer succintement les caractéristiques des ondes rencontrées dans le milieu océanique (J. Manach, ENM, 1991).

    • Programmation du MMSI en pratique

      Le MMSI est un code de neuf chiffres que l’ANFR attribue à un navire exploitant des équipements radio dotés notamment de l’Appel Sélectif Numérique (ASN ou DSC en anglais pour Digital Selective Calling). Il permet une identification sûre du navire par les centres de secours tout spécialement en cas de détresse. Si votre VHF n’est pas programmée avec un MMSI délivré par l’ANFR, le poussoir rouge de détresse ne sera pas opérationnel en cas de problème, ainsi que les fonctionnalités s’y rattachant. Il est donc essentiel de savoir vérifier si sa VHF est correctement codée.

        Navigational Warnings carry information which may have a direct bearing on the safety of life at sea. It is the fundamental nature of the Navigational Warnings that they will often be based on incomplete or unconfirmed information and mariners will need to take this into account when deciding what reliance to place on the information contained therein. Select at least the years.

      • Previsione del vento e mare nel Mediterraneo (LaMMa)

        L'altezza significativa (Hs o H 1/3) è l'altezza media del terzo di onde più alto. In pratica se si mettono in scala crescente di altezza tutte le onde presenti in un'area della superficie del mare e si prende la media del terzo più alto si ottiene l'altezza significativa. Questa misura ha il vantaggio di essere molto vicina all'altezza che un osservatore esperto rileva ad occhio nudo dal ponte di una barca. Esempio: previsione di mare molto mosso con onde di 2 metri (altezza significativa (Hs) di 2 metri). Che tipo di onde posso incontrare in mare? – 1 onda ogni 2000 (Hmax) avrà altezza di 4 metri – 1 onda ogni 100 (H 1/100) avrà altezza di 3,3 metri ( 2 metri x 1,67) – 1 onda ogni 10 (H 1/10) avrà altezza di 2,5 metri ( 2 metri x 1,27). L'altezza massima dell'onda è il doppio dell'altezza significativa.

      • Coordinate systems at sea

        For safe navigation at sea, it is important to know your position as well as the positions of obstacles. Positions are expressed in coordinates. Positions at sea are expressed in latitude and longitude, and height or depth with respect to a specified water level. Coordinates are only meaningful if you know the coordinate system they refer to. These are the so-called coordinate reference systems. Mariners have to know which coordinate reference system to use for positioning.

        Magnetic declination is an important concept for accurate navigation. A compass will always point along the lines of magnetic force (which converge on what are called the magnetic poles). The angle between the direction of force and the direction of the geographic north pole is called the declination. As one moves across the surface of the globe, lines of constant magnetic declination are called isogonic lines. These charts below depicts, for 2015, isogonic contours of magnetic variation at 2° intervals (Main Field Declination). More information about The World Magnetic Model (NCEI).

      • Magnetic Variation Annual Change Charts (Annual Change Declination)

South of 30°N, areas are depicted for winds higher than 25 knots with the corresponding seas noted. North of 30°N, areas are depicted for winds of gale force (34 knots) or higher with the corresponding seas noted. Ranges in which the 25/34 knot thresholds are the upper limit (i.e. 25-35 knots) are included on the graphic. For more information.

      • Tropical Cyclone Danger Graphic (Mariner's 1-2-3 Rule)

        Between May 15 and November 30 (hurricane season).
        The tropical cyclone danger graphic is intended to depict the forecast track and corresponding area of avoidance for all active tropical cyclones and to depict areas for which tropical cyclone formation is possible within the next 36 hours over the Atlantic and East Pacific waters between May 15 and November 30 (hurricane season). The 3-day forecast track of each active tropical cyclone is depicted along with a shaded "danger" region, or area of avoidance. The danger area is determined by adding 100, 200, and 300 nautical miles to the tropical storm force radii (34 knots) at the 24-, 48-, and 72-hour forecast positions, respectively (hence the Mariner's 1-2-3 rule). For more information.

      • Mariner's Guide For Hurricane Awareness In The North Atlantic Basin

        This guide will hopefully aid the Mariner in understanding the complex structure and behavior of tropical cyclones in the North Atlantic Ocean. Once armed with this knowledge, and the information on where to acquire forecasts and guidance for current tropical cyclones, the mariner can be prepared to "weather the storm" or better yet, avoid these catastrophic events altogether.

      • Weather observations from buoys

        National Data Buoy Center (NDBC) provides hourly observations from a network of buoys and Coastal Marine Automated Network (C-MAN) stations. All stations measure wind speed, direction, and gust; barometric pressure; and air temperature. In addition, all buoy stations, and some C-MAN stations, measure sea surface temperature and wave height and period. Large numbers of boaters use the observations, in combination with forecasts, to make decisions on whether it is safe to venture out. When away from a computer/the Internet Dial-A-Buoy gives mariners an easy way to obtain weather reports. Also mobile access to the buoys.

        The Mariners Weather Log (MWL) contains articles, news and information about marine weather events and phenomena, worldwide environmental impact concerns, climatology studies, storms at sea, and weather forecasting. The MWL is dedicated to the NWS Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) Program, Port Meteorological Officers (PMOs), cooperating ships officers, and their vessels. Including: Marine Weather Review. Some articles:

      • NWS Observing Handbook No. 1

        The importance of ship reports cannot be overstated: for every 100 observations on land, there is only about 1 observation at sea. Without your participation in the Voluntary Observing Ship (VOS) program, there would be vast marine areas without data, making weather forecasting nearly impossible for these areas. Reporting weather not only contributes to your safety, but adds to your basic knowledge of seamanship.

      • The Arctic Forecaster's Handbook

        With continuing ice-melt and more open water present, increased commercial and military traffic will become evident, but not without cost. Surface Fleet and Aircraft Carrier Operations in the Arctic Ocean is a new challenge for the Arctic Forecaster. Snow, ice, freezing rain, wind, wind chill, floating ice and icebergs, to name a few, can take a toll quickly, rendering the fleet, equipment, communications and crew operations extremely difficult. The prudent Arctic forecaster will consider all products from climatology, satellite imagery through numerical products. The forecaster will need to more frequently update environmental information, build a good forecast and environmental recommendation to the fleet commanders in order to ensure the fleet is kept out of "harms-way" and remains an effective force. Use of this handbook will assist the Arctic Forecaster in that endeavor (HTML files, 2015).
