Surface currents and temperature have a dramatic impact on weather.
Pacific Gyre drifting buoys relay sea surface and air temperatures, barometric pressure,
wind speed and direction, and other vital information for global and regional weather
Special air deployment packaging is available to drop drifting buoys in front of,
or behind hurricanes using C-130 aircraft.
Track ocean currents at a fixed depth between 5m and 100m beneath the ocean surface.
Perfect for shallow coastal environments, the Microstar Lagrangian drifter can be
built with satellite or terrestrial data packet telemetry.
Communicate directly with your Pacific Gyre buoys without an internet connection
using a Windows PC and a Base Station.
