Abstract:

The long-term goal is to develop a nested grid of multi-static CODAR HF Radar systems and demonstrate their utility for mapping real-time surface currents on the New Jersey Shelf. The multi-static radar network, combined with real-time access to the international constellation of ocean color satellites and a growing fleet of autonomous underwater Gliders, will form the sustained component of the evolving New Jersey Shelf Observing System NJSOS. NJSOS, along with similar regional observation efforts in Maine and North Carolina, will be linked within the NorthEast Observing System NEOS to eventually provide surface current maps for the entire northeast coast from Hatteras to Halifax.
