, iii) the effect of the number of basestations (drifters with satellite connectivity) on the overall network connectivity, and iv) the optimal communication range of the basic drifters.  ...  Surface drifters are designed specifically to move passively with the flow of water on the ocean surface and they are able to acquire sensor readings and GPS-generated positions at regular intervals.  ...  Conclusions In this paper, we investigated the impact of the drifter deployment strategy on the quality of ocean sensing performed using a fleet of drifters passively propelled by surface currents.  ...

2016 Oceanography  
Variability of near-surface circulation and sea surface salinity observed from Lagrangian drifters in the northern Bay of Bengal during the waning 2015 southwest monsoon.  ...  The array was largely organized in clusters consisting of three SVP-S drifters plus one SVP drifter (i.e., ~5 min apart), with most deployments on the fresher side of the salinity front.  ...  The reason for the additional deployment of standard SVP drifters was to improve the overall representation of the surface circulation in the BoB where observations of ocean currents are lacking.  ...
