Abstract. This letter presents the monitoring results of the sea waves and the surface currents obtained by analyzing data acquired by a X-band marine radar in two different operative conditions, namely the short and medium pulse modes. In particular, we investigated the feasibility to use a medium radar pulse for sea state monitoring by comparing the performance in both the radar modes. The comparison was carried out by means of an experimental campaign and we observed a good agreement for surface current and sea state parameters estimation.
