A CENSUS OF NEW YORK HARBOR MARINE TRAFFIC DERIVED FROM SIDE-LOOKING AIRBORNE RADAR DATA

The purpose of the report is to document the findings of a census of New York Harbor marine traffic made during the period 15-21 November 1973. The purpose of the census was to obtain data for use by the Coast Guard on planning for a Vessel Traffic System for New York Harbor. A side-looking airborne radar SLAR was used to make the census so that data could be readily obtained at night or during poor visibility conditions. The report contains a discussion of the means by which the SLAR data was analyzed, as well as the census data itself.
