This database contains the data of satellite-tracked surface drifters released in the Eastern Mediterranean as part of the NEMED project. More details can be found on the NEMED 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.
