Fine tuning drift pathways
The TOSCA project observational network was set up in five high-risk areas and has shown that data from radars and drifters can provide real-time visibility of coastal surface currents. HF radars are the only way of obtaining a synoptic view of these currents, within reduced error margins of a few kilometres and a few hours.
