Coastal wave field imaged from a radar station in New Zealand

X-band radar image acquired by a WaMoS-II system obtained at Tongue Point, Cape Terawhiti (New Zealand). The colour indicates the radar backscatter intensity. The white arrows indicate the peak wave direction of the incoming waves (from: 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”.
