We deployed an array of 200 weather sensors in the Pacific and assimilate the data in our global models. We have reduced forecast rms errors by over 20%, providing the highest fidelity wave forecasts in the world.
After searching through the records of our own trips we’ve come up with what we consider a good basic field kit for any Trident deployment.
Remotely operated vehicles (ROVs), like any machine or equipment used in marine or freshwater applications, present a potential risk for the transmission of invasive species. If not properly cleaned and treated, they may introduce novel species into new regions.
Wind blowing over the ocean drives the generation of short surface waves and whitecaps. From detailed measurement of the so-called equilibrium range in the wave spectrum, Spotter derives wind speed and direction
