Synoptic Measurement of Dynamic Oceanic Features

Brian K. Haus Hans C. GraberLynn K. Shay
First Paragraph

Shore-based radar systems operating at the high-frequency (HF) mode are becoming a widely used and accepted tool for measuring surface currents for coastal oceanographic research. Their history, theory of operation, and accuracy relative to other sensors are discussed elsewhere in this issue. We will focus on the advantages of the HF radar sampling strategy.
