Time Series Hindcasts

If you are researching a potential construction site, oil drilling location, insurance claim, or environmental issue, we can produce the detailed historical marine weather hindcasts you need. Our data files contain significant wave height, primary wave direction, primary wave period, wind speed, and wind direction in comma delimited format. These are easily imported into spreadsheet programs for further analysis.

We can now produce time series hindcasts in text format for any Virtual Buoy point. Because of the customized nature of this feature and the labor involved, it is not included with a Buoyweather membership. Output is only created by special request and there is an additional fee.

To check for available data, visit the regional forecast page from the main menu and click on a Virtual Buoy in the area you need data. At the bottom of the graph forecast page you will see a link "Historical Data" which will provide pricing and information about the data available.
