Drifting Buoy to Measure ocean Current observe sea surface temperature with GPS location

Small Size, Long Observation Period, Real-Time Communication, Disposable

Drifting buoy can follow different layers of deep current drift to observe the Ocean surface temperature.

Description

Drifting buoy can follow different layers of deep current drift. Location via GPS or Beidou, measure ocean currents by using Lagrange’s principle, and observe the Ocean surface temperature. Surface drift buoy supports remote deploy through Iridium,to get the location and data transmission frequency.
