Real-time surface currents measured by high-frequency radars in the estuary

ISMER produces surface current data from high frequency (HF) radar deployed along the coast of the St. Lawrence Estuary. These data are dessiminate in real time on the SLGO. For more information, please see the data context.

For more information about the project as a whole, visit: http://meopar.ca/research/project/improving-marine-drift-and-dispersion-forecasts.

Parameter: surface current speed.

Access the data in the MARINE CONDITIONS application.
