This activity allows students to understand how gliders self-direct themselves as needed to reach an intended mark due to wind, water currents and other factors affecting their travel. This self-redirection is based on the combination of GPS locations, compass headings, known and encountered currents and other factors

Research programs at the Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute (MBARI) encompass the entire ocean, from the surface waters to the deep seafloor, and from the coastal zone to the open sea. The need to understand the ocean in all its complexity and variability drives MBARI's research and development efforts.
