The EPSONDE-Glider is an instrument developed to make quasi-horizontal measurements of turbulence in the ocean mixed layer. The glider was used during a field experiment on the Scotian Shelf in June 1996 with the intent of measuring horizontal variability of the ocean mixed layer in response to wind forcing. The development and testing of this instrument was partially funded by the U. S. Office of Naval Research.
