Coastal HF Radar

In order to provide a synoptic view of coastal currents and waves along the coastal waters up to 200km offshore, a network of HF radar comprising 5 pairs of radar at AP Coast, TN Coast, Gujarat Coast, Orissa Coast and Andaman island has been established. Current meter moorings are deployed in each of the RADAR locations to validate the current data. Data from HF radar, which are received in real time at ESSO-INCOIS, are converted into user friendly formats such as NetCDF and archived.
