    Research Internships in Ocean Sciences RIOS Hence is NORUS succeeding in providing an international team of students and staff access to modern ocean observatory data from the Arctic pushing forward the training of the next generation on how to use new technologies how to interpret environmental data and how to participate in the science mission of larger team projects To date NORUS activities have initiated and made possible six successful short ranged 100km AUV deployments and three long ranged 100km gliders deployments in the fjord systems of Svalbard covering more than 620km of underwater tracks All of the deployments have been carried out with the scope of addressing both the core scientific questions of NORUS and to educate NORUS students and scientists how to apply these state of the art technologies towards addressing relevant science questions Environmental data from the glider deployment from 30 06 09 to 16 07 09 in Isfjorden Svalbard with the Rutgers glider RU07 The glider traversed the distance of the fjord twice upper figure during the two week deployment and provided highly resolved vertical slices along the fjord of temperature middle figure and Chlorophyll a lower figure among other parameters see the data source On this mission the glider traveled 268 km obtaining 1835 individual casts while being monitored and tasked from shore in this case Rutgers University Data source Rutgers University June 30th 2009 The first Rutgers Glider has been deployed in the Isfjorden fjord on Svalbard June 30th 2009 After some days with testing and technical adjustments the first Rutgers Glider RU07 has now been deployed in the Isfjorden fjord Svalbard as a part of the NORUS programme On June 30th 2009 The RU07 data will serve to improve our understanding of the physical and biological oceanography and ecology in the Arctic and
