Underwater drones will be drifting along the ocean, traveling 6,000 to 8,000 km in a bid to collect data about the oceans’ currents, temperature and salinity to improve climate forecasting.

A part of the Rutgers University Challenger Glider Mission Project, the 2.2 m long drones will gather data while traveling up to 35 km a day around the ocean’s five basins. The mission hopes to gather an unforeseen amount of data on the ocean, to help predict its future and future weather events.
