The glider is an autonomous underwater vehicle (AUV) designed for investigating oceanography to depths of 200 meters for periods as long as a month.
The goal of the initial deployment is to provide concurrent glider/ship/buoy data for
glider instrument calibration, assessment of horizontal and vertical
patchiness near permanent buoys, and satellite data ground truthing with
large-scale chlorophyll fluorescence data.

Please read the description of glider data units before you download glider data. Choose Variables Below:
Oxygen (% sat)
Oceanic Particle Concentration
Coastal Particle Concentration
Light Beam Attenuation
CDOM Fluorescence (qsde)
CDOM Abs Coeff (m-1)
Glider samples intensively (every 4 seconds). Please be patient and choose shorter time period.
