Bellamare and the Rosenstiel School of Marine and Atmospheric Science, partnered in 2015 to develop a large scale deployment of lagrangian drifters. Under the leadership of Dr Tamay Ozgokmen, the development of the first biodegradable drifters was started, and 500+ drifters were launched in the summer of 2016.


The CARTHE drifters performance, affordable price range and unique biodegradable properties have made it the drifter of choice of many surveys.

The next step: a biodegradable parachute to allow for rapid and economic deployment of the drifters from small aircrafts.
