Rutgers Marks 23rd Year of New Jersey Surface Current Measurements

This summer Rutgers will mark the 23rd year of measuring the surface currents off New Jersey.  The measurements were started at three locations Sandy Hook, Loveladies and Wildwood.  The surface currents are measured using High Frequency Radar, a remote sensing instrument that can measure currents over the horizon.  The instruments are manufactured by CODAR Ocean Sensors, a partner with Rutgers since 1998.
