Bellamare and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, partnered in 2015 to develop a large-scale deployment of lagrangian drifters. Under the leadership of Dr. Tamay Ozgokmen, the development of the first biodegradable drifters was started, and 500+ drifters were launched in the summer of 2016.
The CARTHE drifter’s performance, affordable price range, and unique biodegradable properties have made it the drifter of choice for many surveys.
The next step: a biodegradable parachute to allow for the rapid and economic deployment of the drifters from small aircrafts.
