Physical trajectory profile data from glider sylvia deployed by Virginia Institute of Marine Science (VIMS) in the Mid-Atlantic Bight from 2020-09-03 to 2020-09-28 (NCEI Accession 0242943)

Metadata Updated: March 17, 2023

This project supports the deployment and realtime data delivery of autonomous underwater gliders in the coastal ocean to better resolve and understand essential ocean features and processes that contribute to hurricane intensification or weakening prior to making landfall. This is a partnership between NOAA Ocean and Atmospheric Research (OAR) through the Atlantic Oceanographic and Meteorological Laboratory (AOML) and Integrated Ocean Observing System (IOOS) regional associations such as MARACOOS, SECOORA, CariCOOS and institutions including the University of Puerto Rico, University of the Virgin Islands, Skidaway Institute of Oceanography, University of Delaware, Virginia Institute of Marine Science - William & Mary, and Rutgers University. The goal of the project is to provide realtime data for ocean model validation and assimilation throughout hurricane season. This project is supported by the Disaster Recovery Act. The glider will transect offshore to the shelf break in-between Norfolk and Washington Canyon. The glider will repeat this cross-shelf transect for the first half of the deployment. For the second half of the deployment, glider sylvia will work in concert with glider amelia to complete the triangle pattern between Norfolk Canyon and Washington Canyon.

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.
