Robot 'dolphins' give clues to Antarctic melt in data revolution
Dolphin-sized robots are giving clues to a thaw of Antarctica's ice in a sign of how technology is revolutionizing data collection in remote polar regions, scientists said. An international study led by the California Institute of Technology used three yellow "gliders," about 2 meters (6 feet 6 inches) long and each costing $240,000, to measure temperature and salinity in the depths of the Weddell Sea off Antarctica.
