In this video clip, Dr. Fred Bingham, a professor of physics and oceanography at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington, introduces viewers to an at-sea glider system. He defines for us what gliders are and what their function is in oceanographic research, specifically in the context of SPURS or Salinity Processes In the Upper Ocean Regional Study. This video focuses on glider systems specifically and is part of a larger presentation entitled “Follow That Salt! SPURS Results and the Future of Salinity Exploration” (cosee.umaine.edu/coseeos/spurs/webinars_03.htm).
