Glider becomes current news

An ocean glider that rode the East Australian Current from Sydney to Narooma has made headlines the Narooma News.

The article profiles the glider’s purpose and journey, along with the process of recovery by a local charter service.

The glider, from IMOS’ Australian National Facility for Ocean Gliders, transmitted data for 65 days before being recovered with biofouling and some cracking of the outer shell. 

Data from the gliders is available on the IMOS Ocean Portal and the full news article can be accessed on the Narooma News website.
