Drifting buoys are widely deployed to measure near surface ocean currents and temperature. The Global Ocean Observation System program designed a global array of 1250 drifter buoys to cover oceans at resolution of one per 5 ° × 5 ° grids spatially. The National Institute of Ocean Technology, India indigenized drifting buoy in 2012 with geostationary satellite communication to have near real-time data at every hour. The drifting buoy technology is applied for intellectual property right and… CONTINUE READING
