This project will procure, install, and operate high frequency radar systems to measure surface currents at three locations in the Straits of Florida region of the Gulf of Mexico: Fort Jefferson/Dry Tortugas National Park, Key West, and Marathon. The systems will provide new, real-time data for model assimilation and validation to better understand the evolution of the LCS.
