        abstract:  Seaglider is a buoyancy driven autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) developed by scientists and engineers at the University of Washington's School of Oceanography and Applied Physics Laboratory. Seagliders are designed to glide from the ocean surface to a programmed depth and back while measuring temperature, salinity, depth-averaged current, and other quantities along a sawtooth trajectory through the water. Seaglider has entered wide use in scientific deployments. They are designed for missions in range of several thousand kilometers and durations of many months. Seagliders are commanded remotely and report their measurements in near real time via wireless telemetry.

                code:  Glider
            type:  Glider
            description:  It's a type of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV), making high spatial resolution sections repeatedly, and autonomously. An underwater glider is a type of autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) that uses small changes in its buoyancy in conjunction with wings to convert vertical motion to horizontal, and thereby propel itself forward with very low power consumption. Gliders typically take measurements such as temperature, conductivity (to calculate salinity), currents, chlorophyll fluorescence, optical backscatter, bottom depth, and (occasionally) acoustic backscatter. They navigate with the help of periodic surface GPS fixes, pressure sensors, tilt sensors, and magnetic compasses. Gliders can be built to withstand various depths and pressures. Long range underwater gliders have recently become operational technology for oceanography. Their most promising role for ocean climate observations is to make high spatial resolution sections repeatedly, autonomously, and at very low cost compared to conventional methods involving ships or moorings. While they provide profiles, as ARGO floats do, the time and location of glider observations is remotely controllable. Gliders can collect repeat observations on a prescribed spatial grid tailored provide a description of how the ocean evolves in space and time on relevant scales. They provide a means for monitoring boundary currents, of particular importance to ocean climate.
