Oceanographic Radar System
Oceanographic radars measure the ocean surface currents and waves in near real-time, by timing reflected radio waves, and contribute to an accurate prediction of severe weather conditions.
ONC’s high frequency land-based oceanographic radars play a key role in making Canada’s coastlines safer for shipping navigation, incident response (such as search and rescue and oil spills), and tsunami detection.
