Gliders are small autonomous underwater vehicles which were developed to carry out in-situ observations of the upper 1km of the ocean filling the gaps left by the existing observing systems. More information on the instruments, how they work, why are they important are posted in the Everyone’s Gliding Observatories site (EGO).
