EMODnet Physics on the European ATLAS of the Seas - Map of the Week

The European Atlas of the Seas  provides information about Europe’s marine environment, covering topics such as nature, tourism, security, energy, passenger transport, sea bottom, sea level rise, fish consumption, and much more

A new map layer on sea water velocity has been added in the European Atlas of the. The map shows the sea surface current velocity fields near our coasts. The sea water velocity and direction of sea water velocity are measured by High Frequency Radar (HFR) in near real time. HFR is a land-based remote sensing instrument offering a unique insight to coastal ocean variability, by providing synoptic, high frequency and high resolution data at the ocean atmosphere interface.
