|Alternative Labels||CARTHE drifter|
|Definition||A drifter used for physical and biological oceanography, search and rescue missions, marine pollution tracking, as well as surface current monitoring for the offshore industry and the Navy for purposes of navigation and operational risk reduction. Large scale deployments can also be used to study the upper ocean processes that control the transport of hydrocarbons in the environment. The drifter is made from PHA biodegradable plastic. The instrument is activated by a magnetic switch and can send its position every 5 minutes for a period of up to 3 months with meter accuracy using very-low cost GlobalStar Simplex telemetry systems. The client can receive the data in real-time through the Pacific Gyre LLC website, the official distributor of CARTHE drifters.|
