This analysis allows us to compare radial velocity components from each HFR site with the ADCP components.

# HFR directionΒΆ

To verify that the HFR looks in the right direction:

-

For each time step of the time period of interest, we compute the distance from the HFR site to each grid point. We select the grid points that are at the same range from the HFR site than the grid point closest to the ADCP.

For each of these grid point (in cyan in the figure), we compute the azimuth the the site coordinates and we extract the radial velocity (total) and its components (zonal and meridional).

the new phases are so closed to the old ones that there isn’t any real differences in the radial currents
