The location of the FINO3 research platforms, the \"Dan Tysk\" sand bank, is located approximately 80 kilometers to the west of Sylt where up to 80 wind power plants will be located in just a few years.
Ocean surface currents have long been the focus of research due to the role they play in weather, climate and transportation of pollutants, yet essential aspects of these currents remain unknown.
For more than a decade space-based radar instruments have been routinely observing ocean surface phenomena including wind, waves, oil slicks, even the eyes of hurricanes. Now â€“ employing the same principle as police speed guns â€“ satellite radar has also begun to enable direct measurements of the speed of the moving ocean surface itself.
