Investigating Regions of Freshwater Influence in the Taranaki Bight, New Zealand with a Slocum Glider

Guest: Fiona Elliot, Oceanographic Engineer, National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA)
In this fall series of podcasts, we introduce some of the winners and general entrants from the 2020 Teledyne Marine Photo Contest. Teledyne's annual Photo/ Data Contest concluded with over 80 qualified submissions that helped the company donate over $1200 to Save the Children as part of a charitable giving campaign.

In this episode we meet Fiona Elliott, a past oceanographic engineer at the National Institute of Water and Atmospheric Research (NIWA) in New Zealand. Fiona's contest submission was a photo of a Slocum glider deployment, investigating regions of freshwater influence in the Taranaki Bight in New Zealand. Fiona's submission won her this year's Zen Award.
