Presentation Transcript
1. Stochastic Forecasting of Drifting Ships and Smaller Objects Dr Øyvind Breivik Norwegian Meteorological Institute Kjell Røang Christian Michelsen Research

2. Objective • To generate search areas for the Norwegian Search and Rescue Service based on the best available wind and current information Challenge • Make search areas as small as possible, but not smaller

3. Other uses • Containers • Mine-like objects • Objects at large (buoys, ROVs)

4. The Uncertainties Involved • Where and when did the accident take place? • Which object should we look for (life raft, person in water, …)? • What are the wind conditions like in the area? • What are the surface currents in the area?

5. Search Maths POS = POD x POC • POS: Probability of success (do we find what we are looking for?) • POD: Probability of detection (the keen eyes of the rescuers) • POC: Probability of containment (are we searching in the right place?), our business

6. Forces on a Drifting Object • Wind (leeway) • Surface current • Wave motion (damping and excitation) The motion of an object of arbitrary shape is difficult to model, approximations are needed

7. Leeway divergence • Leeway divergence sends objects at an angle relative to downwind • Symmetry allows stable drift left and right of downwind (little jibing is observed). →Diverging search areas with time

8. Downwind Approximations Wind speed and object drift is approximately linearly related Different objects drift differently ... Undrogued life raft Life raft with drogue

9. Crosswind

10. Empirical leeway model

11. Archive and prognoses 7 day archive combined with 60 h prognoses of • Wind from 20 km res. atmospheric model (HIRLAM 20) • Surface currents from 4 km res. ocean model with tides and wind forcing (POM)

12. Wind and current close up
