New HF Radar System at Ebro Delta

The system measures  the speed and direction of ocean surface currents and waves in near real time. It covers an area from Tarragona (Catalonia) to Vinaroz (Valencian Community) and 70 Km offshore. The system operates with a resolution of 3Km.


The Delta del Ebro Radar System is composed of three sites. Each one of them comprises a trasmitter-receiver antenna placed near the water's edge. The sites are placed at Salou Light House facilities (Tarragona), Alfacada Beach (Delta del Ebro Natural Park) and Vinaroz Marina (Castellon) .

Up-to-date maps, time series and data are available on Puertos del Estado web page.
