Currents on the inner shelf respond to a combination of forcing by intrusions of oceans fronts, eddies and internal waves as well as winds, surface gravity waves and topographic rectifications. To quantify the effect that the interaction of these processes has on inner shelf flows, a shore-based, 25.4 MHZ (High Frequency) Ocean Surface Current Radar (OSCR) was deployed to measure the surface current vector field at high spatial and temporal, resolution over the inner and mid shelf. Surface currents were mapped in near-real time. The surface current maps revealed numerous surface current features.
