Abstract:

The overarching objective of the proposed Lagrangian drifter effort is to collect in-situ Lagrangian observations of surface currents over the Mariana trenchridge system between Palau and Guam, in the Indian Ocean and in the Arabian Sea to improve the dynamical knowledge and predictability of the near-surface circulation in these regions and to provide an independent dataset for the validation of numerical models.
