The results of multiple deployments of surface drifters in warm core rings of the Gulf Stream are presented. Four satellite drifters (tracked by the Argos system) were deployed on nine separate occasions and two LORAN-C drifters (operated by the University of Miami) were deployed three times. Drifter studies were conducted during four cruises aboard the R/V Endeavor in 1982 in conjunction with the Warm Core Rings Experiment and one cruise of the USNS Bartlett in January 1983 which was sponsored by the Office of Naval Research. Translational velocities and periods of rotation are provided for two rings: 82B and 82H.
