We consider the potential for making current measurements from gliders, and present data from a deployment in early 2007 of 1000 m Slocum electric gliders in the North West Mediterranean Sea. Three types of current measurement are considered. First, by comparing the difference between successive GPS positions, obtained when the glider surfaces, and dead-reckoned displacements when the glider is submerged, it is possible to estimate depth averaged horizontal currents and also surface drift… CONTINUE READING
