This database contains the data of satellite-tracked surface drifters released in the Ligurian Sea as part of the LIDEX10 project.
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 MATLAB binary files.
This product is the collective work of Antonio Bussani, Riccardo Gerin, Pietro Zanasca and Pierre-Marie Poulain. Funding was provided by the United States Office of Naval Research.
