The DEA, UCT and CSIR together with their collaborators from various international research institutes, were also able to collect data, deployed and recover gliders which were at sea for 13 months.  These gliders remotely collect long term data such as sea surface temperature, oxygen and carbon measurements, which are instrumental in further enhancing our understanding of present day global climate change.
