Special Issue: High Frequency Radars for Coastal Oceanography

On the Cover: Daily averaged surface current vectors from the CODAR/SeaSonde HF radar network around Monterey Bay for 6 August 1994, together with satellite-derived sea surface temperatures in the range 9°C (blue) to 17°C (red). Symbols denote offshore mooring locations (red) and radar sites (black). Photographs show the phased-array antennas recently deployed in Santa Cruz (see Teague et aL, 1997, this issue), the older-style CODAR antenna deployed at MBARI in Moss Landing, and the SeaSonde antenna deployed on a Coast Guard building at Pt. Pinos near Monterey. These images were produced by G. Hatcher (MBARI) and P. Braccio (NPS).
