Cycle II, Bridging the Gap/KTEE

This project will 1) develop and provide wave or sea-state climatology products that have been tailored for open-water users (hunters, tug-boat operators, Coast Guard) and for coastal engineering considerations, 2) increase the liaison work that has been established between Atkinson’s existing MEOPAR and Environment and Climate Change Canada (ECCC) regarding the on-the-ground impacts of particular synoptic patterns, and 3) provide technical training opportunities for end-users.
