OceanGliders, the glider component of the integrated Global Ocean Observing System

The OceanGliders program allows active coordination and strengthening of the worldwide glider activity. It contributes to the present international efforts for Ocean Observation for Climate, Ocean Health and Real Time Services. See http://www.goosocean.org/.

Our goal here is to monitor the global glider activity, share the requirements, efforts and scientific knowledge needed for gliders data collection and support the dissemination of glider data in global databases, in real-time and delayed mode, for a wider community.

OceanGliders brings marine scientists deploying gliders from all over the world to:

  1. Observe on the long term physical, biogeochemical, biological ocean processes and phenomena that are relevant for societal applications
  2. Contribute through gliders data dissemination to the Global Ocean Observing System.
