An Assessment of the Impact of Changing Meteorological and Oceanographic (Metocean) Conditions on Offshore Activities
Collected papers of the colloquium, held 1996

This volume discusses the mounting evidence of significant changes to the metocean conditions in the North Atlantic, and assesses their impact on offshore operations and coastal engineering activities.
It will be of particular significance to anyone working in the North West Atlantic area, reflecting the topics of: short–term implications for existing installations from the increased severity of the weather patterns; longer term implications of sustained severe weather for older structures; safety and cost implications on potential reduction in available ‘weather windows’ for critical marine operations; effects on the designs for new installations; implications for Platform Safety Cases, regulatory matters, and the insurance industry.
