ANFOG glider powering through waters off Perth, WA

Since 20th January this year, an ocean glider from the ANFOG fleet has been soaring through the coastal waters of Western Australia.

Two weeks into its mission, Slocum Unit109 is still powering strongly through the waters off Perth, charting the behaviour of the coastal currents and collecting data for studying the ocean patterns intimately linked with climate change.
