Ocean gliders are increasingly being used to collect high resolution, multidisciplinary oceanographic data, and revealing processes that are occurring at scales smaller than those that satellite or shipborne measurements would observe. They are able to collect this data in dangerous weather conditions and for a fraction of the cost that a shipboard mission would be. Seagliders are used at the University of East Anglia, and deployment locations have included Ross Sea, Weddell Sea and Amundsen Sea around Antarctica. I will talk about some of the missions that UEA have been involved in around Antarctica, the lessons learned and potential future developments.

This talk is part of the British Antarctic Survey - Polar Oceans seminar series series.
