SUPPLEMENTARY INFORMATION: Purpose of the Meeting The DOE is supporting a project through Oregon State University (OSU) to develop and assess the performance of a method for using wave-resolving marine radar to provide all weather, large-area, phase-resolved, wave forecasts for wave energy converter control applications. The target time horizon for the forecasts will be 3–5 minutes (min) and the target spatial domain will be approximately 3–5 kilometers (km) on a side. A wave forecasting system based on waveresolving marine radar data will be developed and implemented. The main components of the system are a wave imaging marine radar, a phase-resolving linear wave model based on Mild Slope Equations (Polar-MSE), and a variational inversion algorithm which produces the wave forecast via estimation of the offshore wave boundary conditions. Presently, the algorithm is being validated via testing using synthetic data and comparison to a limited set of in situ observations. The purpose of the meeting is for DOE and OSU to obtain feedback from the marine renewable energy industry regarding field testing and verification of the wave-by-wave forecasting system under development. Public Participation Members of the public are welcome to attend the workshop. Registration is free and persons interested in attending this public workshop must register online by 1:00 p.m. EST, February 16, 2016.
