Brief description The Dongara - Port Denison (DONG) HF ocean radar site (29.283 S 114.920 E) is one of two HF ocean radars covering the Coral Coast north of Perth. The other HF ocean radar station is at Green Head. The HF ocean radar coverage is from the coast to beyond the edge of the continental shelf.
The DONG HF ocean radar is a SeaSonde crossed-loop direction finding array. This radar operates 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. The antenna bearing is 288 deg true east of north (approximately west by north-west).
Within the HF radar coverage area surface current radials are measured.
Australia’s Integrated Marine Observing System (IMOS) is enabled by the National Collaborative Research Infrastructure Strategy (NCRIS). It is operated by a consortium of institutions as an unincorporated joint venture, with the University of Tasmania as Lead Agent.
