Underwater Glider Goes Searching for North Atlantic Right Whales

JASCO Applied Sciences and Teledyne Webb Research have teamed to deploy a Slocum G3 underwater glider fitted with JASCO’s OceanObserver intelligent acoustic monitoring system in the Gulf of Saint Lawrence.With the support of Dalhousie University and the Ocean Tracking Network, the glider was deployed September 15 in the Orpheline Channel on a six-week test mission to attempt to detect and record North Atlantic right whales. In 2017, 12 individuals of this endangered species died in the Gulf, likely as a result of ship strikes and entanglements in fishing gear.The 1.5-meter-long Slocum glider is

, floats, and gliders are quickly swept away.Programs making long-term measurements of major ocean currents rely on resilient moorings. And for measuring strong currents in the upper ocean, these moorings carry ADCPs.In this report, we review several consecutive campaigns over two decades that used Teledyne RDI ADCPs to measure the Greater Agulhas Current. To help capture this incredibly dynamic system, each campaign fixed ADCPs atop mooring lines and on the seabed as part of extensive observational arrays.For a decade, Dutch scientists focused on the strength, variability, and structure of upstream

To communicate the data they collect, they usually surface and use satellite or radio communication, which also allows them to receive missions and correct their positions.Using Teledyne Webb Research Slocum Gliders, Australia-based Blue Ocean Monitoring has been building its track record in the use of subsea gliders, including expanding the range of missions possible with these vehicles, to tasks such as drilling plume and produced water discharge monitoring and oil spill response
