28 September 1999 to 29 August 2003

This database contains the data of satellite-tracked surface drifters released in the Black Sea as part of the international Black Sea Drifter Experiment between 28 September 1999 and 29 August 2003.

A html-based browser was designed  to facilitate access to the data. Individual plots (trajectories and time-series), pictures and movies, a master directory table as well as a short description of the drifter systems and of  the data processing, are easily accessible through standard HTML documents, and can be visualized using a web viewer such as Netscape 7.1 or similar. The edited and interpolated/filtered drifter data are also provided in ASCII and MATLAB binary files, respectively.

This product is the collective work of Riccardo Barbanti, Roberto Cecco and Pierre-Marie Poulain at OGS, Trieste, Italy.
