High Frequency Radar - Surface Currents near Martha's Vineyard Coastal Observatory
The Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution (WHOI) operates a system of three medium-range Seasonde HF radars on the southern New England shelf capable of observing the ocean environment at ranges up to 45km.  These systems are being utilized to conduct advanced research on:
  • the exchange of water nutrients, and pollutants between the surf zone and the coastal ocean offshore
  • improving surface current extraction methods from the radar signals
  • and, adapting wind and wave extraction methods to the SeaSonde HF radar system, which could be implemented at each of the ~350 SeaSonde coastal radar systems operating worldwide.
The WHOI HF radar system is presently able to provide realtime observations and may be accessed through here.
