Two autonomous wind-powered vehicles sailed from Cabo Verde to Trieste, Italy, demonstrating how fit-for-purpose technology can be used to increase ocean observation.
Data collected by two saildrones and a subsurface glider along a transect between Italy and Croatia will be intercompared with that of the E2M3A ocean station.
As part of the Atlantic to Mediterranean mission, two saildrones studied CO2 air-sea fluxes due to volcanic activity in the vicinity of the Aeolian Islands.
Two saildrones and an underwater glider traveled the Nice-Calvi line to study air-sea carbon flux and demonstrate the potential of autonomous vehicles to extend the capability of fixed-point observatories and remote sensing.
Two saildrones collected oceanographic and biogeochemical data filling observational gaps in a particularly dynamic region of the Western Mediterranean Sea.
SD 1030 and SD 1053 reverse the path of the ancient mariners, entering the Mediterranean Sea through the Pillars of Hercules.
The Canary Islands’ ESTOC site is one of nine fixed ocean stations in the Atlantic and Mediterranean where saildrones will collect in situ measurements for cross-calibration and validation.
Two Saildrone USVs will collect in situ measurements at nine fixed ocean stations in the Atlantic Ocean and the Mediterranean Sea for cross-calibration and validation.
