This is the first podcast of two featuring Rutgers University oceanographers Oscar Schofield and Scott Glenn. They use underwater robots called gliders to study the ocean and save lives. Schofield says about the science: “It’s kind of a nerd fest. But the fact that we can actually see [the data in real time] is unprecedented.”
