Underwater glider P201 from the Oceanic Platform of the Canary Islands (PLOCAN) has been recovered from the waters to the north of Gran Canaria by the offshore patrol vessel Meteoro of the Spanish Navy, having completed its oceanographic research mission in the waters of Macaronesia.

The mission of P201 began in Madeira and lasted for one month, during which the underwater glider travelled more than 400 nautical miles and made 500 dives to 1000 m depth, in the process collecting 1.5 million data points for each of the biogeochemical seawater parameters being measured.
