NOMR12 DRIFTER DATABASE






DRIFTER DATABASE

2 Sep 2012 - 1 Mar 2013

INTRODUCTION


This database contains the data of satellite-tracked surface drifters released in the northwestern Mediterranean Sea in September 2012 during the NOMR12 experiment.

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, Pietro Zanasca and Pierre-Marie Poulain.
