HF coastal ocean radar in an observing system
Heron, M.L., Ridd, P.V., Greenslade, D.J.M., Skirving, W.J., and Heron, S.F. (2007) HF coastal ocean radar in an observing system. In: Coasts and Ports 2007. From: Coasts and Ports 2007, 18-20 July 2007, Melbourne, Vic, Australia.
The HF coastal ocean radar in the southern part of the Great Barrier Reef is part of a national integrated marine observing system, and the data will be available for research applications from a national archive. The primary archived product is hourly values of surface current vectors, significant wave heights and wind directions at over 1000 grid points at 4 km spacing over the shelf and adjacent ocean. A review of currently associated research projects includes validation of hydrodynamic modelling, tsunami detection, connectivity of reefs and islands, empirical physical process modeling, and combining radar surface current data with satellite-based sea surface temperature data to produce an index of mixing in the vertical column of water.
