Brief description

The Coral Coast (CORL) HF ocean radar system covers an area of the Western Australia Coast, Western Australia, an area subject to the variability of the Leeuwin Current (LC) and its coupling with coastal winds, tides, and waves. In this area the LC generates several eddies which control the larval species and the higher marine species and ecosystems in which they forage.

The CORL HF ocean radar system consists of two SeaSonde crossed loop direction finding stations located at Dongara (29.283 S 114.920E) and Green Head (114.967 E 30.073 S). These radars operate at a frequency of 4.463 MHz, with a bandwidth of 25 KHz, a maximum range of 200 Km and a range resolution of 6 Km. Within the HF radar coverage area surface currents are measured.

The CORL area of coverage has a small overlap of commonly observed ocean with the Turqoise Coast (TURQ) SeaSonde HF ocean radar system on its southern side, which in turns early overlaps with the Rottnest HF radar node. Together, the CORL, TURQ and ROT systems provide continuous monitoring of the shelf from Fremantle to Geraldton.
