Development of a 3rd generation light, wave-following surface contact multi-sensor float (SCMsF) is underway. This instrument is designed to simultaneously measure net ocean surface heat flux, solar irradiance, near-surface water temperature and sea state. Whereas the 2 nd generation SCMsF design is tethered to a WOCE-type Lagrangian drifter, the 3rd… CONTINUE READING
