Physical trajectory profile data from glider sbu01 deployed by Stony Brook University (SBU) in the Mid-Atlantic Bight from 2019-07-16 to 2019-08-12 (NCEI Accession 0239595)

Metadata Updated: March 17, 2023

Stony Brook University's ocean glider project at the School of Marine and Atmospheric Sciences is part of a multi-disciplinary 10 year effort to monitor the physical, chemical and biological conditions within the New York Bight. The program is supported by New York state's Department of Environmental Conservation. The glider program will consist of four seasonal cruises covering the area between eastern Long Island and New Jersey, and out to the shelf break. The other program components include seasonal cruises to acoustically survey plankton and fish with net tow ground truthing combined with physical/chemical hydrocast measurements and marine mammal surveys. This real-time dataset includes measurements of temperature, salinity, chlorophyll a, colored dissolved organic matter, optical backscatter and oxygen concentration and saturation.

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.
