Our shore based radar tower at the Guadalupe Restoration Project is up and running since Thurs afternoon. Example image above shows two sets of incident internal waves (~6km and ~3km offshore) at 737pm (local) on Aug 31. Red symbols are one of MacMahan’s arrays and blue symbols are Falk’s. So far, when zoomed in, rip current fields are also evident at certain tide stages.

If you are interested in this as kmz, or even better, as a 40 minute sequence to see internal wave propagation, see the links below:
