NPR story on wave gliders

Chris Sabine and Chris Meinig were interviewed by Seattle's public radio station KUOW about the PMEL carbon wave glider.  This vehicle was developed in collaboration with Liquid Robotics Inc and measures CO2, pH, temperature, and salinity in the surface ocean.  It harnesses ocean wave energy to provide essentially limitless propulsion while solar panels continually replenish the batteries used to power the electronics. The Wave Glider has successfully circumnavigated the Big Island of Hawaii, surveyed West Coast of the North American from Canada to Mexico, and crossed the Pacific Ocean from Hawaii to San Diego.

The full audio of the interview, a slide show, and video of the wave glider in action is available at KUOW's earthFIX website.
