Abstract

This paper deals with exploitation of the wave radar system for sea surface currentestimation in a coastal zone. In particular, we present the results of the processing of the radardata collected by an X-band marine radar installed in Capo Granitola site, which is located in thesouth-west part of Sicily, on 15 May 2015. The effectiveness of the data processing is analyzed bycomparing the wave radar estimated sea surface current with that provided by the Lagrangian driftersalong its movement trajectory. During the measurement campaign, three drifter releases are carriedout and for each one the comparison is provided in terms of the mean error and standard deviation.In addition, we report the characteristic sea state parameters, in terms of peak wavelength (lp), peakdirection propagation (qp), peak period (Tp) and significant wave height (Hs) of the dominant wavesestimated by the wave radar system.
