Description 
Summary

Between 1985 and 1989, the OSCR HF Radar system was used on 13 surveys to measure surface currents in the eastern Irish Sea. These surveys were commissioned by the North West Water Authority (NWWA) in connection with their sea disposal programme. Tidal analyses of these observations were completed by the Proudman Oceanographic Laboratory (POL). The 13 surveys included 3 from Cumbria in 1985, 7 from the Fylde coast (Liverpool to Morecambe Bay) between 1986 and 1988 followed by 3 using the Mark II system in Cumbria in 1989.
