The GINA oceanographic experiment

Notice to all Sailors

Some self-directed robotic Gliders, the Waveglider and Seaglider  which use two-way communication to relay data back to shore will be deployed off Richards Bay in mid-June and will collect valuable information on currents and a range of water parameters en route to Port Elizabeth.

The gliders are controlled remotely by pilots who are in contact with them by satellite. Please direct queries to the contact addresses in the attachment.

Should you come across any of these platforms between Richards Bay and Port Elizabeth,  please do NOT interfere with them as they are part of the GINA project.

Thank you
