COCES DRIFTER DATABASE
22 May 2009 - 3 Apr 2013
This database contains the data of satellite-tracked surface drifters released off NW Africa in the tropical Atlantic Ocean as part of the COCES project. More details can be found on the COCES main page.
A html-based browser was designed to facilitate access to the data. Individual plots (trajectories and time-series), a master 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 Milena Menna, Antonio Bussani, Riccardo Gerin and Pierre-Marie Poulain. Funding was provided by the United States Office of Naval Research.
