Gulf Stream Glider

Senior Scientist Breck Owens, aboard the R/V Henry Stommel from the Bermuda Institute of Ocean Sciences, downloads data from the Spray glider after its first successful crossing of the Gulf Stream. The glider can stay at sea for weeks, sending back environmental data via satellite several times a day when it surfaces. (Photo by Ben Carr, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution)
