LADC-GEMM Blog Post Introduces “Will” the Seaglider

4506“Will” is an underwater autonomous vehicle that will survey and collect acoustic Gulf of Mexico data for approximately eight weeks. Every four hours, the glider surfaces, relays information back to a base station at Oregon State University, and descends again to collect more information.

Will is surveying and collecting acoustic data in the Gulf until July 22, 2017, when he will be recovered by a small boat by OSU graduate student Samara Haver and Sean Griffin of Proteus Technologies.
