Abstract:

Our long-term goal is to develop a relocatable, sustainable, infrastructure-free ocean observing system composed of low-cost, high-endurance vehicles with near-global range and a modular sensor payload. Particular emphasis is placed on the development of adaptive sampling strategies and the automated control of large glider fleets.
