Web map models wave energy of Russian seas

By on 17 July, 2019

Researchers at the Lomonosov MSU (Faculty of Geography) have launched an open access web map of available wave energy.

Currently published in beta, the first edition of the Russian wave energy web-atlas gives open, interactive access to data modelling the spatial distribution of wave energy in the waters of the Black, Caspian, Baltic, Barents and Kara seas.

Stanislav Myslenkov. senior researcher from the Oceanology department of the Lomonosov MSU and web-atlas project coordinator, said that the intent was to model and display the optimal sites for electricity generation infrastructure.

“The created method allows counting the number of the generators of one type or another for the most stable generation of the electricity or for its maximum generation over a certain period of time at the pointed location,” he said.

The creators say that the web-atlas will soon be updated with other information: wind energy and unique statistical features for wave/ wind characteristics seasonal variability.

The research producing the data is available here (English), and the map is available here (indicators in Cyrillic).
