Abstract

Recent years have highlighted that the necessity of ocean data in time and space for the predictions of environmental changes on Earth. As one method of acquiring data, we propose a virtual mooring system using an underwater glider. Using our developed and re-modified prototype vehicle "BOOMERANG", oceanographic observations were made in the west sea-area of Japan's Kami-Goto islands in July, 2015 and in the East China Sea in July, 2016. Details of the observations are presented herein.
