Meteorological Institutes

The MetOcean information derived from the ocean radar data can be integrated into existing forecasting systems.

Met-Offices are benefiting from these real time observations of ocean currents and sea state and can use such data to improve regional forecasts of the ocean weather by assimilation of these data into their numerical models. For this purpose a real time quality check is implemented to ensure that good data only are used for assimilation processes.

In addition to that the Tsunami detection software can be used to identify Meteo-Tsunami and other unusual weather driven oceanographic phenomena.

Tsunami Warning System
for ranges up to 200km                          


  • Each single WERA system can be used for Tsunami Detection
  • The array type antenna systems  ensure high performance and reliability
  • The fast real time processing on-site calculates the actual Tsunami probability
  • The detection range need to be adapted to the distance of the continental shelf edge
  • Best suited for 9 to 26MHz systems
