This book was written by a group of international experts, and represents a review of Lagrangian observation, assimilation and analysis methods in both biological and physical oceanography. Recently, quite a large number of drifting and floating drifting research buoys have been deployed in the global oceans with the intention to study the state of the ocean and the ocean's variation in terms of water mass properties, heat transport and circulation. Lagrangian techniques are necessary in order to be able to to analyze the data from the above noted buoys.
