Wave Gliders Collect Live Ocean Data from Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano Lava Flow

June 25, 2018

Liquid Robotics announces the deployment of two Wave Gliders, autonomous ocean robots, to capture live ocean data close to where lava is flowing into the ocean from Hawaii’s Kilauea Volcano. By using this unmanned technology, scientists have the rare opportunity to study the effects of the lava entering the ocean, the plume it creates and […]

GNSS-Acoustic Observations of Seafloor Crustal Deformation Using a Wave Glider

Iinuma, Takeshi, Motoyuki Kido, Yusaku Ohta, Tatsuya Fukuda, Fumiaki Tomita, and Iwao Ueki

Crustal deformation of the seafloor is difficult to observe solely using global navigation satellite system (GNSS). The GNSS-acoustic (GNSS-A) technique was developed to observe seafloor crustal deformation, and it has produced a steady series of successful observations with remarkable results related to crustal deformation associated with huge earthquakes around […]

Evaluation of a New Carbon Dioxide System for Autonomous Surface Vehicles

Sabine, Christopher, Adrienne Sutton, Kelly McCabe, Noah Lawrence-Slavas, Simone Alin, Richard Feely, Richard Jenkins et al

Current carbon measurement strategies leave spatiotemporal gaps that hinder the scientific understanding of the oceanic carbon biogeochemical cycle. Data products and models are subject to bias because they rely on data that inadequately capture mesoscale spatiotemporal (kilometers and days to weeks) changes. High-resolution measurement strategies need to be implemented […]

Mapping Fish Chorus Distributions in Southern California Using an Autonomous Wave Glider

Pagniello, Camille MLS, Megan A. Cimino, and Eric Terrill

Passive acoustics is a tool to monitor behavior, distributions, and biomass of marine invertebrates, fish, and mammals. Typically, fixed passive acoustic monitoring platforms are deployed, using a priori knowledge of the location of the target vocal species. Here, we demonstrate the ability to conduct coastal surveys of fish choruses, […]
