Abstract:

This Note describes a method of measuring coastal ocean surface parameters, such as surface currents and directional wave height spectra, using a specialized, high frequency.HF, coastal radar known as CODAR Coastal Ocean Dynamics Applications Radar. CETN-I-26, March 1985, provided an overview of remote sensing techniques for measuring ocean waves. This CETN provides more complete information on the CODAR system.
