Abstract:

A summary is presented of the talks and discussions held during a Drifting Buoy Workshop at the Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution on July 11-12, 1978. The summaries provide a means for relating experiences and findings by both analysts and experimenters in the field of drifting oceanographic buoys. In addition, a series of key problem areas and both immediate and long range needs are given. Lastly, suggested approaches to the solution of specific problems are presented as elements of a long range plan for effectively using Lagrangian oceanographic buoys for the acquisition of useful scientific data.
