High Frequency Surface Wave Radar in the French Mediterranean Sea: an element of the Mediterranean Ocean Observing System for the Environment

Abstract : A Mediterranean Ocean Observing System for the Environment (MOOSE) has been set up as an interactive, distributed, and integrated observatory system of the North West Mediterranean Sea in order to detect and identify long-term environmental anomalies. In this framework, the Mediterranean Institute of Oceanography (MIO) operates two couple of High Frequency Surface Wave Radars (HFSWR). HFSWRs provide synoptic observations of sea surface currents with high temporal (0.25-1 h) and spatial (1-3 km) resolution and long range (30-100 km). They can therefore be used to study the variability of the current as well as eddy dynamics. One site, based on the WERA (Helzel Messtechnik) technology and installed near Toulon, is operational and monitored in real-time since more than 3 years. It is composed of two WERA systems featuring respectively a non-linear receiving array and a full bistatic configuration, both working in Direction Finding mode. The second site, intended to extend further East the coverage of the Observatory, was set up in 2014 near Nice with two SeaSonde (Codar) systems. We present here an overview of the HFSWR network, the surface current mapping facility offered by the system, and recent observational results and applications.
