UG Workshop II

The second glider workshop brought together the European-based Everyone’s Gliding Observatories (EGO) and the newly formed U.S.Underwater Glider User Group (UG)2 to strengthen international collaboration through community dialogue, exchanges of information, sharing of experiences, and development of best practices to support the glider community.

Workshop Reports

Workshop Themes

GLIDER COORDINATION

  • International Cooperation: How do we effectively enable sharing and access across EEZs to collectively address science challenges?
  • Exploring Extreme Environments: How do we optimize glider missions to meet scientific objectives in demanding situations (e.g., sea ice, currents, storms, maritime traffic, etc.?)
  • Leveraging Partnerships & Collaboration: What types of partnerships have worked and should be models for advancing glider capabilities?
  • US Glider User Group: How do we empower a robust and active community of glider users in the U.S.?

BEST PRACTICES

  • Data Management and New Requirements: What are some near-term, practical implementation strategies towards achieving sound data management for glider activities and meeting new requirements
  • Documenting Best Practices: How can we collect, develop, verify, and communicate best practices most effectively?
  • Reliability and Sustained Monitoring: What are the fundamental strategies for minimizing operational reliability risks for sustained glider missions?
  • New Sensors and Sampling Strategies: How can new and existing sensors be more effectively deployed on gliders?

CAPACITY BUILDING

  • Training and Education: How do we enhance training and education opportunities for students, operators, managers, and users?
  • Asset Sharing and Funding Opportunities: How do we promote collaborative opportunities for glider missions and build the case for more funding?
  • Communication Tools: What are the best ways for sharing knowledge on gliders across the community?
  • OceanObs’19 & UN Ocean Decade: What is the strategy for the next decade of regional, national, and global ocean observing using glider technologies?
