Something weird in the water

The inventive instincts of The Note were intrigued to hear that oceanographers from The University of Western Australia and WA-based company AUV Ltd, in conjunction with engineers from the US, have deployed an ocean glider to probe the ocean off Perth. The robot technology is the first time such an instrument has been used in Australia and probably in the Southern hemisphere. The underwater vehicle will collect both physical and biological data and, in addition to ocean research, be used for water quality monitoring and applications in fisheries and oil and gas industries.
