During July 1979 the surface currents in the Eastern Strait of Juan de Fuca were mapped with a High Frequency (HF) radar system (CODAR). These currents were measured simultaneously over several hundred square kilometers continuously for five days. The strong tidal currents and estuarine flow dominated the circulation during most of this period of time, while the relatively weak winds seemed to play a minor role. The radar sites were selected to provide Ocean current information along the proposed pipelines.
