SPOT Satellite -- Gulf of Mexico

CARTHE researchers used water surface drifters equipped with SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger(TM) devices to track surface flow in the Gulf of Mexico. Researchers will use collected data to help explain ocean flow and the dispersion of pollutants over time. During the research process Hurricane Isaac crossed the Gulf, allowing researchers to add another layer of analysis to their research. (Photo courtesy of carthe.org)
