Radars - Methodology

Objectives / Milestones

The objective of this project, in partnership with SLGO, is to make surface current observations accessible to the public. For the first time in Canada, data collected in the St. Lawrence Estuary (see map) using four high frequency radars (13 MHz and 16 MHz) will be readily available.

Furthermore, it is our intent to engage in constructive discussions with stakeholders and data users in order to improve this product and ensure that our research results are properly used and interpreted.

Project Milestones

  • Publish real-time surface current observations collected using a high frequency radar network (May 2015).
  • Promote the product, collect user feedback (2015-2016).
  • Integrate user comments and implement improvements to the interface, initiate standardization (2016-2017).
