Abstract Our state-of-the-art glider fleet consists of 7 Teledyne Webb Slocum gliders and 4 Wave Gliders. Combined, our gliders have completed more than 100 missions, traveling more than 65,000 km, and collecting 200,000,000 data points along the way. Gliders can remain at sea for months at a time collecting data on physical, biological and chemical processes, operating at little cost compared to ship time and reducing risk to field personnel. Our glider group, with funding from The Ocean Tracking Network (OTN), Marine Environmental Observation Prediction and Response (MEOPAR) and contributions from the Department of Fisheries and Oceans (DFO), deploy Teledyne Webb Research Slocum electric gliders and a Liquid Robotics wave glider to help ocean monitoring efforts, collect data for researchers studying ocean habitats and marine animal telemetry.
