During August, 1978, the surface currents in the Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca were mapped with a High Frequency (HF) radar system (CODAR). The surface currents were measured simultaneously over several hundred square kilometers at one hour intervals continuously for five days. Strong tidal currents, estuarine flow, and wind driven circulation were all identified as influential forces in the strait. These measurements were compared with those obtained with surface drifters and current meters, which were observed by the other participants in this experiment. The radar and current-meter measured currents generally were in agreement to within a few centimeters per second.
