First Paragraph

High-frequency (HF) radar measurements have been employed around Monterey Bay, CA, to measure ocean surface currents since February 1992. The first array consisted of two older-generation CODAR instruments located at sites near Monterey in the south and Moss Landing, halfway around the bay to the north (Front Cover: Fig. 1). In 1994, the southern site was replaced with a newer-generation SeaSonde system at Pt. Pinos and a similar unit was installed near Santa Cruz on the northern shore of Monterey Bay. Finally, in 1996, the CODAR system in Moss Landing was replaced by a modern SeaSonde unit.
