An ocean bottom seismic observatory with near real‐time telemetry

Berger, J., G. Laske, J. Babcock, and J. Orcutt

Abstract: We describe a new technology that can provide near real-time telemetry of sensor data from the ocean bottom without a moored buoy or a cable to shore. The breakthrough technology that makes this system possible is an autonomous surface vehicle called a Wave Glider developed by Liquid Robotics,
