CODAR Real time Long range vector fields
Entry ID: ocean5_rutgers

Abstract: 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 a receiver 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 ... View entire text
