This video highlights the mechanisms by which a sea glider, a popular type of oceanographic research equipment, moves throughout the ocean and how it is able to collect and transmit data collected to satellites in outerspace. Also included in this video are data visualizations that have been generated from a research expedition to the mid-Atlantic ocean as part of a larger project known as SPURS (Salinity Processes in the Upper Ocean Regional Study). This video focuses on sea glider data 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).
