In fall of 2013, we deployed an unmanned ocean glider that  joined a dozen others in a coordinated effort to simultaneously observe the coastal waters of the entire eastern seaboard.

Our deployment was part of “Gliderpalooza,” a two-month effort that aims to combine data collected by gliders with information from satellites, moorings, and land-based, high-frequency radar to paint a detailed picture of ocean properties and currents along the continental shelf from Nova Scotia south to Georgia.
