applications for…



Our ocean radar WERA is highly flexible and can be configured for the specific requirements in coastal research: The measurements have high spatial and temporal resolution of surface currents, wave parameters and wind direction.

The data are available as maps of sea-surface currents or wave height and time series for selectable points can be generated. All data can be archived and exported in various formats. The open data interface allows access to data at all processing levels as well as access to archived raw data or maps.
