Depth-Dependent Correction for Wind-Driven Drift Current in Particle Tracking Applications

Predicting the trajectories of buoyant objects drifting at the ocean surface is important for a variety of different applications. To minimize errors in predicted trajectories, the dominant transport mechanisms have to be considered. In addition to the background surface currents (i.e., geostrophic,...
