National Collaboration

MET Norway collaborates with the Norwegian Coastal Administration (NCA) and the National Public Roads Administration (NPRA) for planning and operation of a safe and more sustainable coastal infrastructure.

Our models provide input to the coastal wave forecast at  with marinograms (Figure 1) and boundary conditions.

We handle atmospheric and ocean measurements on behalf of NPRA and NCA. The observations are distributed freely. Observations are crucial for forecasting, weather surveillance and model verification and development.
