Science

Satellite imagery improves understanding of Earth’s systems, but in situ data is required for calibration, validation, and algorithm development.

Missions

Five saildrones were deployed from Barbados to join the EUREC4A/ATOMIC project, a massive international effort using air, space, surface, and sub-surface platforms to improve climate models and weather prediction.

Missions

The 5th annual Arctic mission, in partnership with NOAA and NASA, took a fleet of saildrones to a new frontier—the Arctic ice edge—to improve sea ice prediction and satellite algorithm development.

Technology

Saildrone-ship-buoy comparisons were a key objective during NASA’s SPURS-2 field campaign, as highlighted by a paper published in a special issue of Oceanography.

Missions

Six saildrones were deployed from Dutch Harbor, AK, to survey ongoing changes in the Arctic ecosystem in partnership with NOAA’s Pacific Marine Environmental Lab and Alaska Fisheries Science Center and NASA.

Data

The Saildrone Baja Campaign studied upwelling and frontal region dynamics, air-sea interactions, and diurnal warming effects along the US/Mexico coast.
