Griffiths, Gwyn, Merckelbach, Lucas and Smeed, David (2007) On the performance of three deep-diving underwater gliders In OCEANS 2007 - Europe. Institute of Electrical and Electronics Engineers., pp. 1-5. (doi:10.1109/OCEANSE.2007.4302200).

Record type: Conference or Workshop Item (Paper)


Underwater gliders with a diving capability to 1000m provide a new tool with which to make physical measurements to aid our understanding of processes in the ocean. Prior to experiments designed to observe deep convection, we carried out a series of trials using three 1000m Slocum electric gliders. Here we report on the performance of the deep buoyancy engine and the glider energy consumption and efficiency.
