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 ...
Underwater source localization using a hydrophone-equipped glider
Buoyancy-driven underwater gliders are autonomous underwater vehicles that were originally developed to collect oceanographic data. CMRE is studying the use of this technology for the characterization of denied areas, ...
GLider Acoustics Sensing of Sediments (GLASS): experiments and data analysis
Seabed characteristics (geoacoustic properties and scattering strength) are critical parameters for sonar performance predictions. However, this bottom information is considered very difficult and expensive to achieve in ...
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 ...
