Earth observation satellites for offshore wave and wind applications
Reference persons GIUSEPPE GIORGI
Research Groups MOREnergy Lab
Description The role of monitoring and data gathering in science and technology is continuously increasing. Within this context, the proposed research considers the use of earth observation satellites, especially in the field of ocean monitoring, needed for design and operation of offshore renewable energy systems.
Satellite data have a wider spatial coverage with respect to in-situ measurements, but generally have low revisit time and inaccurate results close to shore. This thesis aims at investigating the performance, mainly in terms of accuracy and resolution, of satellite data, as well as their compatibility with offshore engineering applications, rather than climate change monitoring. In addition, satellite measurements will be compared with co-located in-situ data: a sensitivity analysis will include the influence of the distance threshold for the spatial co-location, and the time-window for the temporal co-location, which is related to the stationary of the underlying stochastic process.
This thesis is performed in collaboration with MESPAC, which is a young innovative start-up, as well as spin-off of Politecnico di Torino.
