Abstract:

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