The G2 Slocum Glider is a versatile remote sensing AUV for ocean research and monitoring. Buoyancy driven, the long range and duration capabilities of Slocum gliders make them ideally suited for water column observations.
The interchangeable nose pump sections and science bay sensor suites give users the flexibility to optimize their glider fleet as mission requirements change. Conceived by Douglas C. Webb and supported by Henry Stommel.
