Layer: High Frequency Radar Locations (ID: 2)

Name: High Frequency Radar Locations

Display Field: station

Type: Feature Layer

Geometry Type: esriGeometryPoint

Description: This dataset show the point locations of High Frequency (HF) radar systems across the US. HF radars measure the speed and direction of ocean surface currents in near real time. These radars can measure currents over a large region of the coastal ocean, from a few kilometers offshore up to 200 km, and can operate under any weather conditions. They are located near the water’s edge, and need not be situated atop a high point of land. Dozens of institutions own and operate HF radars within the United States, and many are coordinated through the US Integrated Ocean Observing System. Ocean surface current data from these radars are shared on national servers by the National Data Buoy Center and Scripps Institution of Oceanography. If specific information regarding a local radar system is needed, please contact Dr. Jack Harlan, Project Manager for the HF Radar Ocean Remote Sensing, US IOOS Program Office.
