CARTHE scientists are conducting an experiment in the northern Gulf of Mexico using surface drifters/floats/buoys. Please leave the drifters/floats/buoys in the water. They are designed to drift with the ocean currents for several months so the researchers can learn more about the ocean currents in the Gulf of Mexico. To learn more about this experiment, please visit http://carthe.org/laser/
. The different drifters look like this
THANK YOU!!!! cheers, ProfessorO
The goal of scientists is to maximize what we know of the real world by using the mathematical world to optimize the information from the observed world.
