Radar Observations

Near Real Time data from two HF Radars installed at the Mariculture Centre of Calheta and Municipal Library of Câmara de Lobos. The radar is a CODAR SeaSonde Standard Range, with separate Transmit and Receive antennas, operating at 13.5 MHz. The data acquired has an average radial range of about 100km, and the system produces a new radial map each hour.

Ocean Circulation Forecasts

MERCATOR IBIQV5R1 is an operational Global Ocean Circulation product, provided daily by 'myocean'. Variables are displayed over the bathymetric lines of 0-500m (each 100m); Plotted model variables include: i) Sea Surface Height (SSH); ii) Temperature; iii) Salinity; iv) ocean current vectors over flow speed. You can visualize maps in the approximate model-depths: 0,50,100,200,300,500,750,1000,1500,2000,2200 meters.
