COAST-HF network

COAST-HF is an observing network along the French coasts including an ensemble of in situ moored platforms sampling at high frequency keys variables in coastal waters.


LOPS produces unique data bases on ocean waves using satellite data and numerical models, from large space and time scales (30 years over the globe) to high resolution (HOMERE and RESOURCECODE hindcasts) with 300 m along the coast...


In-situ observations of sea surface salinity are collected, controlled and corrected in order to prepare high quality datasets well suited for climate studies or satellite validation. At present time the data are collected underway from research vessels, merchant ships, sailing boats and drifting buoys. This activity contributes to the SOERE-CTDO2 and CNES/TOSCA SMOS-OCEAN project. The delayed mode datasets produced join the GOSUD database.
