Reliable information for better decisions
A service developed by the Environmental Hydraulics Institute of University Of Cantabria
What is IHData?
IHData is the collective name for the services associated to the metocean databases developed by the Environmental Hydraulics Institute of the Universidad de Cantabria. IHData is capable of providing accurate wind/wave/sea level climatological statistics for any European country and wave climate for any region worldwide.
IHData services are oriented to transfer and analyse met-ocean data for research or commercial purposes. The objective is to transfer the past, present and future climate knowledge taking account the data quality. The final services are the met-ocean data, climate analysis and characterization and custom climate products.
The metocean databases included in IHData for the services are focused in marine climate characterization. The main variables are waves, wind and sea level, although currently IHData includes more variables. The databases cover different zones with different spatial resolutions, ranging from global to local data with a high spatial resolution near the coast. Most of the databases are historical reconstructions with hourly temporal resolution covering a period of more than 30 years.
We provide Climate services to offer you the best data for your needs.
Metocean data for all your projects
Personal assistance for your data purchase
You only need to explain your data query and purpose, and you will be assisted with the best expertise to obtain the most suitable metocean data from our databases.
Reliable and suitable metocean data
The data quality of our datasets in your target area is guaranteed through rigorous validation and calibration processes using available instrumental data, ensuring the accuracy of wind, wave, water level, and current data.
If reliable metocean data don´t exist, we will create reliable and accurate metocean data
This is the mission of Custom Climate Products. Our team of experts possess extensive experience in modeling metocean conditions related to waves, wind, sea levels, and currents. We apply the most up-to-date methodologies to deliver the finest metocean data tailored to the requirements of your projects.
Customized and targeted data analyses
Our Metocean data services offer a standard climate characterization, covering mean and extreme climate conditions with the commonly requested analytics in a Metocean Report. Additionally, our Climate Analysis & Characterization service provides customized analyses for your project, including specific analyses tailored to your needs.
