Ocean Exploration with Underwater Gliders

Saturday, July 20, 2013 11:00 AM - 12:00 PM

Underwater gliders are a key component of OSU's new Ocean Observatories Initiative. As they patrol the ocean depths, these autonomous robots are giving scientists new views of the marine ecosystems. See a glider and learn how it navigates, dives and resurfaces in the course of collecting data on ocean currents, dissolved oxygen, plankton and more. This one-hour presentation is part of Oregon State's da Vinci Days activities.
