Makara (New Zealand)


Temporary X-band radar and WaMoS station located in Makara (Northern Island, New Zealand). The station were supportted by the oceanographic research center of New Zealand NIWA. The station was operating during the big storm of August 2011 measuring severe sea state conditions with the presence of strong currents. Some of the achieved results can be found in the paper: Hessner, K., Reichert, K., Nieto Borge, J.C., Stevens, C.L., Smith, M.J., 2014, “High-resolution X-Band radar measurements of currents, bathymetry and sea state in highly inhomogeneous coastal areas”. Ocean Dynamics. June 2014.
