RECOVERY IN BERMUDA—After Spray's first Gulf Stream crossing, physical oceanographer Breck Owens (on dock) helped recover the glider offshore Bermuda using the R/V Henry M. Stommel. A famed WHOI oceanographer, Stommel is credited with first dreaming of gliders to roam over hundreds of kilometers of remote seas and repeatedly dive below the surface to gather data about the oceans.
