SeaGlider - Hawaii 
Glider deployment photo
On August 11, 2007 a glider was deployed just north of the Hawaiian Islands.  The glider dove continuously to 1000 m depth, returning to the surface to relay the measurements via satellite after each dive.  Measurements of both physical and biological ocean properties were made (temperature, salinity, pressure, oxygen, chlorophyll and scattering).  The glider continued to collect data until October 4, 2007, when contact was lost. This site presents preliminary figures of these measurements as they were received in realtime.

The glider deployment and data processing is a joint effort between the University of Hawaii and Oregon State University.  Additional information about the glider can be found at the University of Hawaii website: http://hahana.soest.hawaii.edu/hot/seagliders/index.html
