Episode 28: Glider Observations in New Zealand's Shelf Seas


​On this episode of the podcast we speak with Dr. Joe O Callahan, a coastal oceanographer with the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA), and Khush Jhugroo, a PhD candidate in Physical Oceanography at the University of Auckland in New Zealand. They discuss the work they are doing with NIWA in the shelf seas around New Zealand. The team has been examining river washes out to the bays, and understanding the deep eddies in greater Cook Strait using two Slocum autonomous gliders, Betty and Manaya.

For more information on the work being done with Slocum gliders in the shelf seas around New Zealand, follow the Twitter handles for NIWA and Dr. O'Callahan.
