Abstract - -
The circulation in front of Usedom has been measured by HF-radar, which is
a remote sensing technique using electromagnetic waves in the decameter range.
By setting up three radar sites at Ahlbeck, Koserow and Karlshagen,
a strip of up to 35 km off the coast of Usedom has been observed twice
Data were collected during the four seasons within the German project
TRUMP (Transport und Umsatz in der Pommerschen Bucht).
Special conditions for operation of HF radar systems in that area have
been identified, which include the influence of salinity and wave height.
Structures of the current field during typical wind situations and
outflow from the Swina are shown.
Finally, some information is given on an advanced HF-radar system called
WERA (Wellen Radar),
which has recently been developed at the University of Hamburg.
