B.20 Where the Wild and Robotic Things Are - DeepglidersFritz Stahr

Deployment of deepsea gliderUpper ocean remote sampling is now becoming nearly ubiquitous with drifting profilers, satellites, and 'vessels' of opportunity. But measuring the bulk of the ocean, which is deeper than 1000m, is severely limited by time on research ships, the only way we've been able to get to it. Some robotic solutions are at hand, one of which is operational now - the Deepglider(TM) from the University of Washington.

This presentation will illustrate the technology and delve into data coming from four Deepgliders operating presently in the Atlantic to illustrate the importance of full-depth measurements.
