Our WERA Data Viewer allows easy access to real time data maps, time series and archived data. For scientific users this is the perfect tool to generate animated current or wave maps for presentations or plots of time series for individual grid cells. All data can be exported in various data formats including NetCDF and GRIB. All data are quality checked in real time and the user can select which quality level you want to be displayed.
For harbour or vessel management applications the feature Ocean Warnings is helpful to indicate if in particular areas a predefined threshold of current velocity or wave height is reached.
Maps of Ocean Surface Currents and Siginificant Wave Height
Time series for individual grid cells.
Generation of ocean alerts with programmable thresholds for current & waves Access to data archive and various options for data export.
The ocean current data can be used to increase the reliability of drift predictions for environmental protection applications and for Search and Rescue (SAR). For SAR the drift of lost people or drifting boats can be predicted. For environmental protection the drift of oil spill or lost containers can be predicted and in the hindcast mode the location of the source for a pollution can be estimated.
An approaching Tsunami wave generates a specific current signature at the ocean surface. This Tsunami signature is moving rapidly in the deep ocean but slows down to a detectable velocity on the continental shelf. WERA array type systems are sensitive enough to detect even small Tsunami events far offshore.
The Tsunami Probability is displayed as map and as time series to support the decision making process at the national Tsunami Early Warning centre. The data are updated 2 times per minute and detection range reaches out to the continental shelf edge.
Ship Detection and Tracking
Our OTHR systems provide longest detection ranges at low transmit power due to the low noise FMCW operation mode. The detection range depends on operating frequency, day and night cycle, target size and environmental conditions. OTHR systems are typically configured for dual frequency operation. The multi-sensor tracker software and suspicious target identification are available as well as various features to enhance the range and probability of detection.
