Vote on a Name for SECOORA’s New Glider

Equipment ages and technology improves. In order to continue collecting vital data and information, we must invest in new equipment.

 

We are excited to announce that SECOORA purchased a new G3 Slocum profiling glider. The new glider will increase our number of glider days at sea and provide valuable data for hurricane intensity forecasting and ecosystem monitoring.

 

Since this new glider is a SECOORA asset, we want SECOORA members to help us name it!
