CODE/DAVIS - Drifter
The MetOcean CODE/DAVIS drifter is designed and tested to meet the performance criteria of the CODE (Coastal Ocean Dynamics Experiment) drifter developed by Dr. Russ Davis of Scripps Institute of Oceanography. The MetOcean CODE/DAVIS drifter is an inexpensive solution to acquire coastal and esturarian water currents within a metre of the water's surface. Used by the oceanographic and metrological community, the robust design allows for easy ship deployment. The MetOcean CODE/DAVIS drifter is equipped with a sea surface temperature sensor, GPS receiver, and the option of either Iridium or Argos based satellite telemetry. The drifters' operating life is between three to 12 months, depending on the required rate of transmission.
