The University of Miami/Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is currently operating three WERA High Frequency radars in
Crandon Park on Key Biscayne, Virginia Key and John U Lloyd Park on Dania Beach. The radars at Crandon Park transmit at 16MHz, Virginia Key
and Dania Beach transmit at 12MHz and provide measurement of currents on the ocean's surface over a large area of the ocean off Miami, FL.
We would like to thank the following people who have helped us with locations for the radars: Mr. Kevin Kirwan and Mr. Ernest Lynk from
Miami-Dade County Parks and Recreation for our site in Crandon Park on Key Biscayne. Mr. Sidney Leve and Mr. James Higgins from Florida
DEP and Mr. Bill Venezia from South Florida Testing Facility for our site in Dania Beach.
The image below depicts the most recent hourly averaged surface currents plotted on a 2.4 km grid. Our working range is somewhat reduced during
periods of strong winds and high waves. Color refers to strength of the current in knots.
