Ocean Gliders: Autonomous Monitoring of the Marine Environment 

Marine autonomous vehicles are platforms that are deployed into the ocean in order to survey, monitor or explore the conditions in the marine environment, that have intelligent control systems allowing them to remain in the ocean for extended periods with relatively little human intervention. Such vehicles are already revolutionising marine science, allowing us to make measurements in places or conditions that were previously impossible. These vehicles require new expertise beyond the traditional skills of the observational oceanographer.
