In 2019, the Island School's Cape Eleuthera Institute in The Bahamas established a base station for underwater glider operations in the tropical western Atlantic in collaboration with the University of Miami’s Cooperative Institute for Marine & Atmospheric Studies and NOAA’s Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory. Now in its second season, this project joins a wider network of glider operations across the Caribbean that provides real-time upper ocean data on subsurface temperature, salinity and oxygen. The overall aim of this network is to improve our understanding of the interactions between the upper ocean and tropical cyclones to improve wind intensification forecasts.
