attribute NC_GLOBAL summary String Surface ocean velocities estimated from HF-Radar are
representative of the upper 0.3 - 2.5 meters of the
ocean. The main objective of near-real time
processing is to produce the best product from
available data at the time of processing. Radial
velocity measurements are obtained from individual
radar sites through the U.S. HF-Radar Network.
Hourly radial data are processed by unweighted
least-squares on a 6 km resolution grid of the U.S.
East and Gulf Coast to produce near real-time surface
current maps.
