Physical trajectory profile data from glider ng314 deployed by US Navy; Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) in the Gulf of Mexico from 2020-08-06 to 2020-08-27 (NCEI Accession 0239580)

Metadata Updated: March 17, 2023

Deployment of a Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) glider owned and operated by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO). This glider was deployed in the Gulf of Mexico. 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 was deployed just south of the Flower Garden Banks National Marine Sanctuary. The real-time dataset contains CTD observations.

The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) received the data in this archival package 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.
