CARTHE researchers used water surface drifters equipped with SPOT Satellite GPS Messenger(TM) devices to track surface flow in the Gulf of Mexico.

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)
