The CARTHE research team at RSMAS and many local partner organizations have been conducting drift card releases across Biscayne Bay since September 2016 to try to better understand the local ocean currents. With better knowledge about currents, we can do a better job of predicting how oil or marine debris or other things move in the bay (or potentially determining where debris came from).

This past Wednesday, April 19th many drift cards. Please keep an eye out for the drift cards and report where and when they were found, using or #BayDrift on Instagram.
