Physical trajectory profile data from glider ru34 deployed by Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey; Center for Ocean Observing Leadership (RU COOL) in the Mid-Atlantic Bight from 2020-07-29 to 2020-08-26 (NCEI Accession 0239594)

This glider mission will serve as an integral component of Ørsted’s Ecosystem and Passive Acoustic Monitoring (ECO-PAM) project, which will help advance research for detection of North Atlantic right whale, to better understand their presence, distribution and seasonality and to contribute to characterization of their habitat in offshore wind lease areas. Additional benefits of the glider mission include collection of tagged fish data disseminated thru the Animal Telemetry Network as well as contribution of data gathered to the NOAA IOOS Glider DAC that will help improve accuracy of weather forecasting and predicting severe storms. The ECO-PAM project is in partnership with the University of Rhode Island, Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution and Rutgers, The State University of New Jersey. This real-time dataset contains temperature, salinity and oxygen concentration measurements. Acoustic monitoring data will be packaged separately and is not included in this dataset. The glider was deployed southeast of Atlantic City and will perform zig-zag transects south along the coast of New Jersey.

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.
