High Frequency Radar Becomes Part of Global Ocean Observing System

June 13, 2023

This year High Frequency Radar was accepted as one of the networks within the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). The network was accepted along with Ocean Gliders and Animal Borne Ocean Sensors.

GOOS is an international framework and network of organizations that work together to collect, integrate, and share oceanographic data on a global scale. It was established by the Intergovernmental Oceanographic Commission (IOC) of UNESCO in 1991.

Dr. Hugh Roarty shared results from the Global High Frequency Radar Network at the 14th Observations Coordination Group Meeting in Cape Town South Africa June 6-8, 2023.  The Observations Coordination Group (OCG) works to guide and strengthen the implementation of the GOOS and World Meteorological Organization Integrated Global Observing System (WIGOS) through identifying, coordinating and developing relevant initiatives across the global ocean observing networks.
