This diaporama presents images on the high frequency radars installed to date in the Gulf of Trieste test site (Italy) and the data provided by the observing system. Currently, 3 HF radars are operating and provide detailed information about the sea surface currents in a large area (hundred of square km).
The HF radar data will be compared and validated using data from other in-situ instruments (drifters), and will be used to improve theoretical models about ocean circulation.
