        abstract:  This dataset contains satellite-tracked drifting buoy data collected around the southwest Florida Shelf. CODE/DAVIS (Coastal Dynamics Experiment drifters described by Davis, 1985) and mini SVP (Surface Velocity Program drifters described by Lumpkin and Pazos, 2007) buoys were deployed around Pulley Ridge, Dry Tortugas, and southwest Florida Shelf on project cruises between 2012 and 2015. Drifting buoys are designed to float freely with ocean surface currents and report their position back to shore via satellite. Data includes drifter time and position.
        purpose:  Scientists utilize drifting buoys to track ocean currents. In this project, scientists used these drifter trajectories to study the physical connectivity between regions on the southwest Florida Shelf, Pulley Ridge, the Dry Tortugas, and downstream reefs of the Florida Keys National Marine Sanctuary (FKNMS). All drifters, tracking services, and associated data processing were provided free of charge to the project by NOAA/AOML/PhOD in Miami, Florida. The project “Coral Ecosystem Connectivity: From Pulley Ridge to Florida Keys” is focused on investigating the role that the relatively healthy deep, light-dependent mesophotic coral ecosystems of Pulley Ridge may play in replenishing key fish species, such as grouper, and other organisms in the downstream reefs of the Florida Keys and Dry Tortugas. This interdisciplinary study is determining connectivity of specific reef species between Pulley Ridge and the Florida Keys, and describing the structure and determining the value of Pulley Ridge’s mesophotic coral ecosystems. Because of the well-documented decline of Florida’s reefs, it is important to identify, protect, and manage sources of larvae that can help sustain Florida’s reef ecosystems and the tourism economy that depends on it. The data in this accession were funded by the NOAA National Centers for Coastal Ocean Science (NCCOS) under award NA11NOS4780045 to the Cooperative Institute for Marine and Atmospheric Studies (CIMAS) at the University of Miami, and by the NOAA Office of Ocean Exploration and Research under awards NA09OAR4320073 and NA14OAR4320260 to the Cooperative Institute for Ocean Exploration, Research and Technology (CIOERT) at Florida Atlantic University – Harbor Branch Oceanographic Institute. Funding was also provided by NCCOS to NOAA's Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) in Miami, FL, for processing and analysis.

                description:  Parameter or Variable: Drfiter Position (measured); Units: decimal degrees; Observation Category: in situ; Sampling Instrument: buoy - drifting buoy; Sampling and Analyzing Method: CODE/DAVIS style drifters were deployed in 2012 and 2013, with approximately hourly GPS position coordinates data recorded by GPS instrument. For more information on CODE/DAVIS style drifters, see: Davis (1985). Mini SVP style drifters were deployed in 2014 and 2015, with hourly position data determined from original intermittent satellite triangulated position fixes following the method outlined in Elipot et al. (2016).; Data Quality Method: Collected data were manually evaluated to ensure data quality. For more information on CODE/DAVIS style drifters, see Davis (1985); for mini SVP style drifters, see Lumpkin and Pazos (2006) and Elipot et al. (2016)..
