Underwater gliders have become widely used in the last decade. This has led to a proliferation of data and the concomitant development of tools to process the data. These tools are focused primarily on converting the data from its raw form to more accessible formats and often rely on proprietary programming languages. This has leftRead More..
The OceanGliders program started in 2016 to support active coordination and enhancement of global glider activity. OceanGliders contributes to the international efforts of the Global Ocean Observation System (GOOS) for Climate, Ocean Health, and Operational Services. It brings together marine scientists and engineers operating gliders around the world: (1) to observe the long-term physical, biogeochemical, and biological ocean processesRead More..
In the Southern Ocean, increasing evidence from recent studies is highlighting the need for high-resolution sampling at fine spatial (meso- to sub-mesoscale) and temporal scales (intra-seasonal) in order to understand longer-term variability of phytoplankton and the controlling physical and biogeochemical processes. Here, high-resolution glider data (3 hourly, 2 km horizontal resolution) and satellite ocean colourRead More..
