6/27 Quick Codar
Here is a quick look at what i have been working on regarding the Codar data in Jersey...
What a dissapionting image... I guess i really havnt gotten the hang of blogging.
Attention: If anyone who reads this realizes that i am stating info incorrectly, Please write a reply post indicating my errors.
If you use a magnifying glass you will be able to see a bunch of things. The area within the red line represents the 'mask' area. This is an area that if any radials (data) land in, it is considered bad and not used. The pink dots represnt 'grid' points. They will be necessary for the interpolation of the data. The blue line represents a drifter that will be used to help verify the data. The drifter started at the green dot and ended at the red dot. The other dots as shown in the upper left corner represent the 6 codar stations that will be used for this project. And finally the black line is land, Duh!
Here is the demo i am basing all of my work off of. Keep in mind it is an image of the Monterrey area in California so it looks (is) backwards. haha
This is a bare bones representation of what they have. The light blue square represents the grid they are using. The Pink line represents the Mask area. The 3 other areas i think are codar coverage for each site? But mine is pretty similar in general.
My next step will be downloading a the full timeseries of data and then running it through a program i have been working on. Before i did it without a mask, and some problems occured. Hopefully it will go smoothly this time.
