  5. The Consortium for Advanced Research on Transport of Hydrocarbon in the Environment (CARTHE) led by Dr. Tamay Ӧzgökmen at the University of Miami (UM) is conducting the largest-scale experiment of its kind in the Gulf. The summer of 2012, over the course of a week, Dr. Brian Haus (UM) and his research team will deploy 300 custom-made drifters near the Deepwater Horizon site and Louisiana coast. The release of drifters, known as the Grand Lagrangian Deployment, or GLAD for short, is an essential first step to study the complex and elusive surface ocean currents that transport pollutants, like hydrocarbons. In preparation for the real experiment, CARTHE research teams have conducted tests, featured here, to improve drifter deployment and their decision-making process in selecting the best methods to release the drifters – a critical component for the success of this project.
