Low resolution real-time physical trajectory profile data from glider ng278 deployed by US Navy; Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) and University of South Florida (USF) in the Mid-Atlantic Bight from 2022-07-22 to 2022-08-03 (NCEI Accession 0276855)

Deployment of a Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) glider owned and operated by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO). LBS gliders collect temperature and salinity profiles in the water column. These gliders were provided and operated by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) and are part of a larger effort to deploy and operate over 100 gliders simultaneously. Data collected by these Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) gliders is assimilated for use in underwater ocean forecasts that support a wide range of naval operations. The glider will be deployed in 200-300m water depth, inshore of the loop current in the Gulf of Mexico, approximately 200km west of Tampa Bay, FL. The glider will then fly NW to the northern side of the loop current to allow the glider to enter deeper water. Details of a sustained deeper water repeatable segment of waypoints will be determined by oceanographic conditions when the glider approaches this deeper region on the northern side of the loop current. The intent will be to have the glider return to the eastern Gulf on the West Florida Shelf for recovery at an appropriate battery consumption level.

The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) received the data in this dataset from the Integrated Ocean Observing System's National Glider Data Assembly Center (IOOS NGDAC). The IOOS NGDAC received the data in one or more netCDF files comprising an entire glider deployment. The data are measurements of physical oceanographic properties such as temperature, salinity, conductivity, and density. The IOOS NGDAC checked the files for compliance to their netCDF file convention, aggregated the files into a single netCDF file, and then submitted the file to NCEI for long-term preservation. Data files may be either low resolution real-time or full resolution. Full resolution files are designated as "delayed" in the netCDF file name.
