Hourly surface currents measured by High Frequency (HF) Wellen radars (WERA) off western Oahu, Hawaii, from September 2002 to May 2003 (NODC Accession 0013113)

Metadata Updated: February 27, 2019

A pair of High Frequency Wellen radars (WERA) shore-based at southwest Oahu (Ko'Olina) and northwest Oahu (Kaena), Hawaii measured surface currents over a nine-month period from September 2002 to May 2003. Vector currents were combined from measured radial currents on a 5-km cartesian grid by least-square fitting zonal and meridional components to radial components within a 5-km search radius. The resultant hourly data set was calibrated and quality controlled. Data provided by the originators as a MATLAB file. NODC has exported the data into ASCII files.
