Technology enables us to bridge vast distances, as a result, the oceans are now accessible from every teacher’s classroom and internet user’s computer. Spurred by the need for better weather and climate forecasts, the meteorological and oceanographic communities have expanded their monitoring of wind, temperature, currents, and density structure above and within the ocean. These observations utilize more sophisticated techniques than visual observations from ships of opportunity traversing limited regions of the ocean. Real-time data from moored ocean buoys for improved detection, understanding and prediction of El Niño and La Niña.
Moored buoys, deployed by various nations in their coastal waters, serve as instrumented platforms for making automated weather and oceanographic observations. The modern drifter is a high-tech version of the “message in a bottle”. The buoy measures temperature and other properties, and has a transmitter to send the data to passing satellites. For many years, ocean currents have been estimated by how they carry objects. For example, sailors measured the speed of their ship through the water using the ship log.
More recently, researchers began tracking objects while they were drifting. During the 1970s, when satellite tracking became possible, many competing drifter designs were proposed, built and deployed in various studies around the world. The WCRP declared that a standardized, low-cost, lightweight, easily-deployed drifter should be developed. The modern data set of SVP drifters includes all drifters deployed during the 1979-1993 development period that had a holey-sock drogue centered at 15 m depth. The status of the global drifter buoy array in February 2007. II conference in Halifax, Nova Scotia. The current status of the global drifting buoy array is shown above.
II conference in Halifax, you can direct them to our registrar. Deployed by various nations in their coastal waters, and some recent results. Consider making a tax, take a look at Gregg Averett’s comprehensive recap of the 2017 Gathering. It emerged from the semiotics of Charles S. Side of the 7 – and the theoretical biology of Jakob von Uexküll. This is the 27th in a series of videos detailing the history of the Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering. Related or even music related, graduate Hotel is just blocks away from the conference venue.
The drifting buoys represent one platform in a larger array of instrumentation monitoring the state of our oceans. Miami, Florida, manages the deployment of drifting buoys around the world, deploying some 300 new drifters annually. United States Navy aircraft, Global Lagrangian Drifters are placed in areas of interest. Once considered operational, they are reported to AOML’s Data Assembly Center. Pazos, 2006: Measuring surface currents with Surface Velocity Program drifters: the instrument, its data, and some recent results. The Mountain Laurel Autoharp Gathering brings together autoharp enthusiasts from around the world for five days of workshops, concerts and ’round the clock music-making. Now in its twenty-seventh year, the Gathering features concerts and workshops from some of the folk world’s best musicians — and they come because no matter what else they’re famous for, they also just happen to play the autoharp!
