A wave glider is one of the most technologically advanced pieces of oceanographic research instrumentation currently used in at-sea research. In this video, Dr. Fred Bingham, a professor of physics and oceanography at the University of North Carolina at Wilmington gives an overview of the various components aboard a glider and then shows examples of the data they generate while at sea. This video focuses on wave gliders within SPURS (Salinity Processes in the Upper Ocean Regional Study) 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).
