Project Objectives

The research efforts for this project will produce a state of the art synthetic GOM hurricane model to evaluate hurricane risk, as expressed by n-year wind speeds, to offshore and coastal locations for current and future climate scenarios. As a result risks from hurricanes will be reduced by developing and refining a synthetic hurricane model to improve the characterization of the hurricane risk, and, ultimately, the industry understanding of the hurricane hazards within the GOM. Improving the ability to accurately model and understand the hurricane hazards resulting from high wind and wave conditions will in turn result in safer designs for offshore structures, minimizing the risk of infrastructure and personnel loss.
