While Autonomous Underwater Gliders (AUGs) have become a mainstay of coastal and open ocean observing, few observations have been made in lakes using AUGs. This short commentary discusses the role that gliders play in ocean observing systems, discusses a set of observations made in Lake Superior using an AUG, and presents some initial merging of glider and remote sensing data.
