Rutgers University are deploying underwater drones to explore the world's oceans and collect data that will improve weather forecasting.

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.
