CODAR application in the Pomeranian Bay
5th German - Polish Seminar on Dynamics of Odra Estuary, Proceedings,
pp. 251...260, 1993.
Abstract - -
CODAR (COastal raDAR) is a high-frequency (HF) radar
system for remote sensing of sea surface currents.
The physics behind this technique are explained and some examples from
the PRISMA (PRozesse Im Schadstoffkreislauf
Meer-Atmosphäre) campaign are shown.
CODAR will be used during the TRUMP
(TRansport und UMsatz in der Pommerschen
Bucht) campaigns to observe the circulation of
the 0.5 m top layer in the Pomeranian Bay. By setting up
three radar sites on the island of Usedom, the surface currents influenced
by the input from the Oder river at Swinoujscie and from the
Peenestrom through the Greifswalder Bodden can be measured.
