How Does Seawater Move?

Pink dye was released along the coast of the Gulf of Mexico by CARTHE researchers and its movement tracked using underwater sensors, two small drones, a helicopter and a kite. In this photo you can see the pink dye making its way through the coastal waves, allowing scientists to learn more about how the ocean moves below the surface. Read more about what researchers are learning from dye and drifters in our article about the project.
