High Frequency Radar (HFR) have become a key tool for operational oceanography for monitoring the surface currents, waves and winds. An appropriate data description complying with accepted standards is crucial for ensuring discovery and access. EMODnet Physics and the other major European integrators and infrastructures (CMEMS, SeaDataNet) are supporting and promoting the outcome of the HFR Task Team activities.
New providers and operators are welcomed to join the network and be supported to implement the European common data and metadata model for real-time High Frequency Radar surface current data.
