    Coastal ocean surface current maps in different areas of the Portuguese Continental shelf measured by High-Frequency Radars (HFR) since 2016. Four HFR sites (SGTR, AFTR, VATR and MAZA-Spain) are needed for computing the map of total surface current vectors in the overlapping coverage area. HFR is routinely used for real-time monitoring of ocean currents in many places around the world with a growing range of near-real time applications (e.g. search and rescue and oil spill monitoring, navigational safety, model assessment and model improvement, throughout data assimilation).
