Norway has large offshore wind energy resources. The first full scale floating offshore wind turbine (Hywind) is Norwegian. Christian Michelsen Research (CMR) is hosting NORCOWE, the Norwegian Center for Offshore Wind Energy.
In collaboration with the University of Bergen, CMR provides and operates state-of-the-art instrumentation and measurement capabilities for a wide range of atmospheric and oceanographic parameters relevant for offshore wind energy application.

We quantify the percentage of sea surface covered by whitecaps from images taken by a non-stationary camera mounted on a moored buoy using an Adaptive Thresholding Segmentation (ATS) method and an Iterative Between Class Variance (IBCV) approach.
