Abstract - -
An analysis of remote measurements of sea surface currents during MARSEN is
presented. Remote measurements were made by high-frequency (HF) radars in the
German Bight from September to October 1979. Moored current meters made
concurrent in situ measurements several metres below the surface. Comparisons
of instantaneous data sets show differences, which may be explained by vertical
current shear. The computed tidal coefficient from HF and current meter
measurement agree well.
