Physical trajectory profile data from glider ud_476 deployed by University of Delaware; College of Earth, Ocean, and Environment in the Mid-Atlantic Bight from 2018-01-17 to 2018-03-05 (NCEI Accession 0239172)

Metadata Updated: March 17, 2023

This glider deployment, in the South Atlantic Bight, focuses on measuring the nearshore (<30m) oceanography and recording observations of acoustically telemetered animals. The mission will zig-zag the coastal ocean between ~10-30 m water depth, and will measure environmental conditions using a pumped CTD, Aanderaa Optode, and Wetlabs Fluorometer. Integrated Vemco acoustic receivers will also record detections of animals carrying acoustic tags, but we will be targeting Atlantic Sturgeon and Sand Tiger sharks, which were tagged in the Mid-Atlantic region. The glider is equipped with lithium batteries, and will travel from Charleston, SC to Jacksonville, FL between mid-January and April.

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.
