2013 Plots of Drifter Data from the Chukchi Sea

Description of available plots

  • Map of locations color-coded by measured temperature. A green triangle marks the deployment location, and a red star marks where the deployment ended because of beaching, battery failure, or at-sea retrieval. A black dot marks where the drogue likely came off of drogued drifters.
  • Timeseries of measured and filtered east-west (U) and north-south (V) velocities and sea surface temperature (SST)
  • Deployments during 2013 by the North Slope Borough, Department of Wildlife Management (NSBW) and by UAF as part of our BOEM sponsored project (AK NSL 12-03).
  • Plots are over a standard region. If the drifter leaves this regions or is active for longer, there is a 2nd plot of the full drifter deployment.
  • These data had many gaps during times when the drifter was not communicating with the satellite. Gaps have been filled with lower quality data when available. Remaining gaps >3 hours have been interpolated over, and the timeseries have been highlighted with yellow.
