Oʻahu HFR Surface Currents Extended

Oʻahu HFR Surface Currents Extended

A recent addition to our high-frequency radio (HFR) antenna arrays has extended the spatial coverage of Voyager’s surface currents overlay for Oʻahu beginning September 30th, 2015. This new deployment (“kap”) at Kapolei on the western coast of Oʻahu better overlaps with measurements at Kaʻena Point in the northwest so that measurements of surface currents now extend further northwards and offshore of the Waianae Coast.
