Coastal Ocean Processes Experiment (COPE) Remotely-Sensed Radar Data of Coastal Internal Waves
Entry ID: NOAA_ETL_RMOD_COPE

[ Update this Record ]

Summary
Abstract: The Coastal Ocean Processes Experiment (COPE) was a major experiment
performed off the Oregon Coast in September and October 1995 to
examine the use of radars to remotely sense the surface expressions of
internal waves. Several radars viewed the sea surface from land, a
CODAR system measured currents, several moorings were deployed to
measure internal waves as they propagated towards shore, and a ship
was used to perform CTD and ADCP measurements. In addition, R/P Flip
was moored offshore with a wide variety of in situ and remote sensors,
and several aircraft and a blimp were used as platforms for making
radar measurements.

NOAA Environmental Technology Laboratory (ETL) was the lead
organization for this experiment. Other institutions who participated
in the experiments were Johns Hopkins University Applied Physics
Laboratory (JHU/APL), Naval Postgraduate School (NPS), University of
Washington Applied Physics Laboratory (UW/APL), Woods Hole
Oceanographic Institution (WHOI), Institute of Ocean Sciences (IOS of
Fisheries and Oceans Canada), and University of Colorado.
