Two hurricane gliders are making their way up the Gulf Stream to measure heat content to help forecast tropical storms and hurricanes. One glider was released on July 24th from Miami, FL and the other is expected to deploy in September.
A CPO-funded study shows biogeochemical floats can be used to improve measurements of sea-air CO2 exchanges, which are essential for future improvements in climate modeling and projections.
As underwater gliders are increasingly used in oceanography research, glider-based acoustic Doppler current profilers are expected to become more common.
