Sea Level Atmospheric Pressure Data Crucial for Marine Weather Forecasts, Says New Study

Sea Level Atmospheric Pressure Data Crucial for Marine Weather Forecasts, Says New Study A first-ever assessment of in situ sea level atmospheric pressure data (SLP) from NOAA’s Global Drifter Program and other international partners demonstrates that surface velocity drifters, equipped with barometers and floating mostly on the extra-tropical regions, contribute crucial information for marine weather prediction. An early edition of …
