Satellite tracked drifters with holey sock drogues centered at 10 and 40m
depths were deployed during 1995-99 to monitor the seasonal patterns of
near-surface circulation over Georges Bank and adjacent areas. Approximately
248 drifters where deployed by the GLOBEC program. Those drifters with
identifications starting with a "g" were generally ... deployed in US territorial
waters and those with an "n" deployed in Canadian waters by the Bedford
Institute of Oceanography. The drifters transmitted location, temperature,
drogue tension, and battery status typically 6-8 times per day via ARGOS.
Surface circulation over the greater Georges Bank region can seen in monthly
single images or as annual movies of animated drifter plots (see Related URLs).
