A land-based over-the horizon backscatter OTH-B high-frequency HF radar located in California has been used for remote-monitoring operations in the Pacific Ocean north of Hawaii in support of the North Pacific Experiment NORPAX. The radar has 1 detected and accurately tracked drifting buoys, each carrying a low-power HF repeater, 2 provided accurate position data on two research vessels, and 3 recorded sea backscatter data for subsequent correlation of Doppler spectra with measurements of wind direction, wind speed, and wave height.
