ROMOR Unveils two NEW Wave Gliders for Dalhousie University

ROMOR Ocean Solutions announced the arrival of two new Liquid Robotics

Wave Gliders for Dalhousie University in Nova Scotia, Canada. The two glid- ers are an addition to the suite of ocean monitoring tools used by Dalhousie- based Ocean Tracking Network (OTN), the Ocean Frontier Institute (OFI) and the Marine Environmental Observation

Prediction and Response (MEOPAR) network. These two new vehicles will be used to support critical marine research in the Northwest Atlantic and will be housed at the Centrer for Ocean
