Summary: The JetYak is an inexpensive autonomous surface vehicle designed to collect oceanographic data from shallow or dangerous waters. In 2013, researchers took a prototype JetYak to Greenland to measure freshwater flow at the front of a calving glacier. Developers envision many other applications to measure physical, chemical, and biological processes.
