UM/RSMAS HF Radar Operations

From Aug 24 to Sep 26 2003, the University of Miami/Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is operated the WERA HF radar system on the West Florida Shelf as part of the SEA-COOS initative supported by ONR. This was a precursor to our planned work on the East Florida Shelf, and a deployment to familiarize ourselves with the new system.
Below is the comparion of the WERA surface current (black line) and the 3m bin from USF's NA2 ADCP (red line) over the entire experiment. TS Henri was in the area from Sept 5-7 (yd 248-250), WERA and the ADCP agree well during this period.
