This collaborative project is focused on collecting temperature and salinity profiles in the waters in the vicinity of the US Virgin Islands to investigate the oceans role in modulating hurricane intensity in the region. Specifically, glider data will be utilized to both validate and improve operational coupled ocean and atmosphere hurricane models. The 5 Naval Oceanographic gliders deployed in the US Virgin Islands were part of a larger network that included an additional 5 in the vicinity of Puerto Rico. 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. The data these Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) gliders collect is used in underwater ocean forecasts that support a wide range of naval operations.
