Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary, Spring 2021
A Slocum G3 glider was deployed near the Stellwagen Bank National Marine Sanctuary just east of Massachusetts to conduct surveys for tagged fish and baleen whales, including the seriously endangered North Atlantic right whale. The glider is collecting data for the Navy/NOAA SANCTSOUND program.

The Slocum glider was expertly prepared and deployed by Ben Hodges (WHOI) from the R/V Auk. Support for the deployment and operation of the glider was provided by NOAA Northeast Fisheries Science Center. Support for the development and testing of the DMON/LFDCS was provided by the Office of Naval Research, and additional support for integration and testing was provided by the NOAA National Marine Fisheries Service Advanced Sampling Technologies Working Group in collaboration with the Northeast Fisheries Science Center's Passive Acoustics Research Group (leader: Sofie Van Parijs).
