First Community Webinar

Our first community webinar was held on November 12, 2009. If you were not able to attend (or you just want to relive the experience) you can now watch the online recording of the session.

During the webinar, each partner reviewed the progress of their drifter project, including the tracks of the drifters they have deployed and the connections they have made with local ocean scientists and regional associations. A lot of stories were shared and several good tips on working with the drifters.

Stay tuned to the blog for more great tips, and if you mentioned a cool event or tip during the meeting, please post it!
