RU27 Celebration- Complete Atlantic Ocean Survey Proposal

For our next project we plan to send gliders around the whole Atlantic Ocean and even around the world!

Here are some screenshots of our potential glider paths (yellow) along with the currents we are going to ride (red)...

We will travel around the ACC and therefore around the world!

Another glider will sail the South Atlantic Gyre and over the Equatorial Currents!

The Amazon and Orinoco Rivers have plumes that spew high nutrient freshwater into the ocean so this is a good place to study!

Don't forget the North Atlantic Gyre, the Gulf Stream, and 26.5N!

And there is still a lot to be learned about heat transfer and climate changes in the Arctic!
