Drift Model Now Considered for MH370 Search
The Australian Transport Safety Bureau is considering a drift model including ocean currents to find debris of the lost MH370. The aircraft was lost on 8 March 2014 with 239 people on board. Since, search efforts have been made but until this moment without results. Last week, the ATSB gave an update which includes an extension of the ‘7th Arc’ search area with a drifting approach where parts may have been caught in an ocean current, bringing them ashore of Western Sumatra after 123 days. »»

Ocean Measurements with GOCE

  25/11/2014
A year after the satellite reentered the atmosphere, scientists using data from the GOCE satellite have made a breakthrough in our understanding of ocean currents. While the mission is well known for its gravity measurements, the second mission objective as an ‘ocean circulation explorer’ has reached a milestone. Using GOCE data, scientists have produced the most accurate model of ocean current speeds to date. »»
