      Surface drifting buoys, or drifters, are used in oceanographic and climate research, oil spill tracking, weather forecasting, search and rescue operations, calibration and validation of velocities from high-frequency radar and from altimeters, iceberg tracking, and support of offshore drilling operations. In this review, we present a brief history of drifters, from . Satellite-tracked drifting buoys, popularly known as WOCE buoys, are drogued at a depth of either 15 or 50 meters and provide near real-time ocean current information. For operational use by IIP, WOCE buoys are deployed primarily in the .

Measurements of ice movement in Lake Erie using drifting buoys in winter show that wind is the major forcing to ice transport in the Great Lakes (Campbell et al., ).

They reported that the mean observed speed of the buoys in ice is about 8 cm s − 1, half the mean speed observed in open water. Time series measurements of ice thicknesses were made at either 1 or 2 Hz at 6 locations in the western part of Lake Erie's central basin during the winter of – Environmental Research Laboratories (U.S.): Measurements of ice motion in Lake Erie using satellite-tracked drifter buoys / (Ann Arbor, Mich.: United States Dept.

This work focuses on the evaluation of ocean current measurement techniques, using the multi-frequency coastal radar (MCR), a system that operates on.

This study examines temporal and spatial variability of ice cover in the Great Lakes using historical satellite measurements from to The seasonal cycle of ice cover was constructed for.

Interannual variability of ice cover, circulation, and thermal structure in Lake Erie for was investigated using a three-dimensional hydrodynamic model coupled with ice processes.

[11] Drifter buoys were deployed in southern Lake Michigan in and to measure the near‐surface circulation. The drifter data also helps to evaluate the level of confidence and identify potential areas of high uncertainty in the hydrodynamic model simulations.

Lake ice and river ice are primarily Northern Hemisphere phenomena, where most of the ice is seasonal. That is, the ice forms in the autumn, thickens during the winter, and melts in the spring.

Weather buoys are instruments which collect weather and ocean data within the world's oceans, as well as aid during emergency response to chemical spills, legal proceedings, and engineering buoys have been in use sincewhile drifting buoys have been used since Moored buoys are connected with the ocean bottom using either chains, nylon, or.

The counter‐rotating eddy pairs were observed by Cokelet et al. [, sections 7 and 8] using ADCPs and satellite‐tracked drifting buoys. The transport of the Kamchatka Current integrated from coast to m isobath is about 20 Sv (see Figure 1), consistent with the data‐assimilated model estimate of 14–24 Sv by Panteleev et al.
