Abstract:

Our long term goal is to develop multifrequency, high frequency HF radar techniques and instrumentation for measuring surface currents, vertical shear, winds, friction velocity and waves in coastal regions and large lakes for scientific, civil and military applications. Our goal includes deployment of HF radar systems for air-sea interaction, coastal oceanography and ship detection research as well as the integration of HF radar measurements into coastal ocean models. A related goal is to investigate and develop ship detection and tracking techniques for multifrequency HF radar.
