A NUMERICAL HINDCASTOF STORM CURRENTS ON THE NORWEGIAN SHELF

Cortis K. Cooper

Abstract


This paper describes an initial effort to model storm-driven currents and surge in the region indicated in Figure 1. The model results ultimately will be used in the design and operation of offshore oil platforms in the region. The study consisted of four major tasks: I) review of the data base and selection of the hindcast storms, 2) hindcast of the selected storms, 3) set-up and testing of the current model, and f) hindcast of currents for the selected storms.
