    Gulf Stream Info.
    From: Joe Kliment

    There's an excellent Gulf Stream resource provided by Rutgers U. Marine
    Remote Sensing Group:     http://marine.rutgers.edu/mrs/
    They convert data from the AVHRR Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer on
    NOAA's 12 & 14 Seastar satellites.  The data are calibrated to show sea
    surface temp with the graphic display in color to show the ouline of the GS
    and it's eddies.  There are 9 passes/day which gives real time(last 24 hr to
    one week historical data). They also provide satellite pass (orbit) info to
    let you know when to look for the latest data and where the birds are. A
    very useful bit of additional information are drifting buoy data which would
    provide you an indication of the speed of the current by measuring the drift
    plot over time.  Rutgers also provides info on the Marion to Bermuda race.
    I also suggest that you try Jennifer Clark's Gulfstream web site. Finally,
    obtain the GULF STREAM Companion by Ocean Navigator Magazine.  Happy Sailing!
