The three-year Cooperative Research and Development Agreement (CRADA) between NOAA's NDBC and Sofar Ocean is a collaborative effort that will lead to advances in marine observations and environmental monitoring.
The Quileute Tribe deploys the first buoy of the Backyard Buoys program in La Push, Washington.
Sofar Ocean attends Nor-Shipping 2023, a leading maritime shipping conference held in Oslo, Norway.
USNIC Operations Officer CWO2 Mike Latin joins Sofar Ocean’s Government Lead Tosca Lichtenheld for a conversation about the mission of the USNIC, how it uses wave data, CWO2 Latin’s journey in the Arctic, and the data collected by the Spotter buoys that he deployed during his trip.
Spotter’s Power Save Mode turns off its GPS sensor during sampling dwell periods, increasing battery life by at least 25% and extending its deployment duration at high latitudes.
Sofar’s global ocean weather forecasts now account for local air density variability and wind gustiness. Incorporating these variables increases forecast accuracy of moderate to extreme waves during strong winds.
Sofar Ocean Data Scientist Galen Egan, PhD provides an in-depth explanation of Vessel Performance Models (VPM) and breaks down the key components of our Wayfinder voyage optimization platform's AdaptiveVPM™.
The time to implement a leading edge voyage optimization platform is now. Before you invest in a solution, make sure to understand the key differentiators that make a platform exceptional.
Leading dry bulk carriers Star Bulk (NASDAQ: SBLK) and Eagle Bulk (NYSE: EGLE) will use Sofar Ocean’s Wayfinder voyage optimization platform to reduce emissions and increase efficiency across their fleets.
