OceanGliders is an international network supporting the use of ocean gliders, autonomous underwater vehicles that contribute to the Global Ocean Observing System (GOOS). The network supports, coordinates, and enhances glider activity worldwide. OceanGliders is organized into Task Teams (TTs) gathered around technical issues and scientific areas for which gliders are suited to carry out long term observations and process studies. TTs are led by recognized specialists in their domains and fully open to engage broader communities. An OceanGliders Task Team should:

  • Focus on glider activity with wide international applicability
  • Work toward achieving global targets
  • Meet regularly during the year
  • The chair, or co-chair, should attend OceanGliders steering team meeting annually and report on progress.

How to apply: A short abstract (1-2 pages) describing the core application of the task team should be sent to Victor Turpin at OceanOPS: vturpin@ocean-ops.org

Deadline: 15 May 2023
