Drifters in Greenland
We have recently deployed two ice-strengthened drifters equipped with Seabird microCATs in a large fjord system on the west coast of Greenland. This project is a collaboration between our school (the School of Fisheries and Ocean Sciences, UAF), the Geological Institute at UAF (Martin Truffer, Principal Investigator), and the Greenland Climate Research Center.
Davis Type Drifters
We've had a series of projects that utilize undrogued "Davis" type drifters that can operate in the extremely shallow waters of the Bering and Chukchi Seas. The drifters are deployed by local residents, and are subsequently tracked via satellite.
