AbstractWe provide a novel methodology for computing the most likely path taken by drifters between arbitrary fixed locations in the ocean. We also provide an estimate of the travel time associated with this path. Lagrangian pathways and travel times are of practical value not just in understanding surface velocities, but also in modelling the transport of ocean-borne species such as planktonic organisms, and oating debris such as plastics. In particular, the estimated travel time can be useddoi:10.1175/jtech-d-20-0134.1 fatcat:gppesenl4jcqznh7tque4gjyx4
