All gliders are doing well this morning. We take a moment here to toast the Mote team, which did a very rapid turn around the UDel glider that is likely to be redeployed today. Great work!!!
NAVO gliders show a consistent story as yesterday with low salinity surface plume. There does appear to some shoaling of the deep CDOM waters.
The Scripps/WHOI Spray glider continues to make progress, but is experiencing strong northwest currents. The system remains stratified.
The iRobot/APL glider continues its high resolution survey. The data remains consistent, but the CDOM in the mid-water depth is showing a hint of decrease and the particle loads in the surface waters decreasing.
The USF/Rutgers/Mote gliders along on Florida continue to show enhanced subsurface chlorophyll, CDOM, and particles. This turbid layer detaches near the shelf break and Waldo’s along the shelf shows minor variability. RU23 continues its limp to shore with its is cross shore transect . We look forward to the new data of the UDel glider in the next day or two.
