The pH sensor unit is complemented with existing glider sensors including a CTD, a WETLabs FLBBCD ECO puck configured for simultaneous chlorophyll fluorescence and optical backscatter measurements, and an Aanderaa Optode for measuring dissolved oxygen. This approximately 15 to 30 day deployment near Sandy Hook, NJ, and is running a cross-shelf transect to the shelf break north of Hudson Canyon to sample in Atlantic sea scallop habitat. Then the glider will turn and fly back to shore in a west-southwest direction to cover more sea scallop and Atlantic surfclam habitat with possible recovery targeted for Barneget, NJ. However, if pH data are still stable after 15 days (no increased time lag response due to biofouling), the glider will turn southeast and head back to the shelf break then fly back inshore toward Atlantic City. This deployment also supports the 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, 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 was deployed out of Tuckerton, NJ and will transect E to an offshore waypoint north of Carteret Canyon, then transect SSW to Wilmington Canyon, then NW back to Tuckerton, NJ as the battery pack allows. This delayed-mode dataset contains CTD, chlorphyll a, CDOM, optical backscatter and oxygen measurements.\n\ncdm_data_type = Profile\nVARIABLES:\ntime (Timestamp, seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\nlatitude (degrees_north)\nlongitude (degrees_east)\ndepth (CTD Depth, m)\ntrajectory (Trajectory/Deployment Name)\n...
