Short summary
Meteocean and environmental forecasting is increasingly being used in operational decision-making in the sea for demographic, geographic and strategic applications. It also used to force the stochastic models used for search and rescue planning. The stochastic models have many limitations relating to the leeway calculation, and we tried to overcome them; we hope to contribute by providing leeway drift formulae for practical use.
