CODAR Real time wave data
Entry ID: ocean9_rutgers


Summary
Abstract: Coastal Ocean Dynamics Applications Radar(CODAR) Real-Time Sea State
Measurements are available online.

Data includes:
Significant Wave Height
Peak Wave Period

CODAR is used to measure the surface currents of the coastal ocean. A
transmitter sends out a radio frequency that bounces off the ocean
surface and back to areceiver antenna. Using this information and the
principles of the Doppler shift, CODAR is able to calculate the speed
and direction of the surface current. These calculations are made at
about every half mile across the surface and extend as far as about
twenty miles offshore.
