AUV Glider
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:
Water Temp Salinity Density Current Magnitude Current Direction Chlorophyll Fluorescence(ug/l) Chlorophyll (mg/m3) Oxygen (% sat) Oxygen (mg/l) Light Scatter Oceanic Particle Concentration Coastal Particle Concentration Light Beam Attenuation Diver Visibility CDOM Fluorescence (qsde) CDOM Abs Coeff (m-1)
Glider samples intensively (every 4 seconds). Please be patient and choose shorter time period.
