Abstract:

Hindcast by the U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) are reviewed, and recommendations for their use in Canadian portions of the Atlantic Ocean are made. Six storms typical of problems in those hindcasts are selected, and complete hindcast analyses are performed for each. Since the wind model and wave model used in these new hindcasts are identical to the WES models, conclusions regarding error sources can be formed from comparisons of the two sets of hindcasts. Sources of error detected here and methods of obtaining reliable hindcast wave heights are discussed.

Ce rapport donne un compte rendu des previsions a posteriori faites par le U.S. Army Engineer Waterways Experiment Station (WES) et formule des recommendations au sujet de leur utilsation dans les eaux canadiennes de l'ocean Atlantique. On presente l'analyse complete des previsions a posteriori faites pour six tempetes, constituant des exemples typique des problemes rencontres dans les previsions a posteriori. On peut tirer des conclusions au sujet des sources d'erreur en comparant les deux series de jprevisions a posteriori, parce que les modeles du vent et des vagues utilises pour ces nouvelles previsions a posteriori sont identiques aux modeles du WES. On examine les sources d'erreur relevees ici et les methodes permettant d'obtenir des previsions a posteriori sures.
