Benefit assessment of glider adaptive sampling in the Ligurian Sea
The benefits of piloting a glider during a 6-day period via an adaptive sampling procedure in a 80 × 60 km2 marine area are assessed under a fully operational framework. The glider trajectory was adapted to reduce the ocean ...
Volumetric distribution of oceanographic fields estimated from remote sensing and in situ observations from autonomous underwater vehicles of opportunity
A main challenge of military oceanography (MILOC) is to assess the oceanographic conditions of denied/highrisk marine regions. Monitoring technologies are limited to those that can provide access to these regions. Remote ...
Redesigning the SLOCUM glider for torpedo tube launching
Launching gliders from a submarine torpedo tube is of special interest for military operations. This is not currently possible because the wing span needed to achieve a good gliding performance is twice the standard diameter ...
Optimum sampling designs for a glider-mooring observing network
Ocean observing systems (OOSs) constituted by moorings and gliders are becoming relevant in oceanographic and climate studies. In these observing networks, the temporal variability is captured by mooring observations, while ...
Oceanographic field estimates from remote sensing and glider fleets
This work investigates the merging of temperature observations from a glider fleet and remote sensing, based on a field experiment conducted in an extended coastal region offshore La Spezia, Italy, in August 2010. Functional ...
