Gliders, Data and Regional Partners: The U.S. IOOS ® National Glider Network February 10, 2015 R.Baltes, J.Morell, G.Goni, V.Subramanian, R. Amon, C.Lembke 1
Network Developments Glider Network White Paper Released Aug 2014 Effort for Glider Task Team Coordination across agencies, among operators Establish value for network greater than the sum of its parts 3
Summary of Glider Days for Year Glider-days of data collected annually by glider operators. (Glider-day = 1 glider in the water collecting data for 1 day) Glider-days completed outside of the EEZ Glider-days supported by IOOS PO – 2013 Totals * Glider Days provided with support from Federal Agencies including NSF, ONR, NOAA, EPA, state and local governments and private foundations.
Glider DAC Update 5 National standards to ease exchange of data from regional glider operators Real-time distribution to non-federal and federal partners Share your data Let us make it easier Archiving
Mission 01: July - November, 2014 Two underwater gliders were deployed on July, 2014, one in the Caribbean Sea, and one in the North Atlantic Ocean. Together, both gliders collected 2844 temperature and salinity profiles until recovery on November, Mission 02 (underway): February – late May Sustained and Targeted Ocean Observations for Improving Tropical Cyclone Intensity and Hurricane Seasonal Forecasts A partnership between NOAA, University of Miami, CariCOOS and Autoridad Nacional de Asuntos Maritimos of the Dominican Republic 6
Project: Investigation of circulation and evaluation of oil spill scenarios in the Gulf of Mexico Project coordination: Ensenada Center for Scientific Research and Higher Education (CICESE) Funding source: SENER (PEMEX)-CONACYT Hydrocarbon Fund: Duration: 5 years, starting April 2015 Funding: U$ 100,000,000 6 major themes 1.Implementing a systematic observation platform with immediate or intermittent access (oceanographic buoys and anchors with various sensors, gliders, radar, and images of the sea surface acquired from satellites). Coordinador: Dr. Francisco J. Ocampo Torres (CISESE) 2.Oceanographic cruises in the Gulf of Mexico, the Straits of Florida and the western Caribbean Sea. Coordinator: Dr. Sharon Herzka (CISESE) 3.Analysis and interpretation of the main circulation processes, biogeochemical and ecological control and modulate the large ecosystem of the Gulf of Mexico. Coordinator: Juan Carlos Herguera (CISESE) 4.Computational models that integrate the major circulation processes with biogeochemical and ecological processes. Coordinator: Dr. Julio Sheinbaum Pardo (CISESE) 5.Empirical models that characterize the degradation of different hydrocarbon fractions at different depths (T and P) and that can be integrated in the overall model. Coordinator: Alexei Licea (CICESE) 6.Analysis of the potential consequences of large scale spills under different scenarios. Coordinator: Paula Pérez (CICESE) Future Glider work in Mexico 8
Next Steps Establish Glider Task Team to advance Glider Network Concept (1-3 mon) Deliver Version 2 Glider data on GTS through NDBC (1-3 wks) Develop Version 2 of Glider Asset Map in Catalog (2-5 mon) Garner participation from across Regional Associations (Now!)

Hurricane Underwater gliders 2 year project, funded under Sandy Supplemental funds. Partners: NOAA/ AOML, University Puerto Rico Mayaguez, CariCOOS, CIMAS, NOAA/NDBC, NOAA/EMC First mission started in July 2014 and recovery took place in November Two underwater gliders (Seagliders) Temperature and Salinity profiles and depth average currents to profiles during first mission. Observations along 5000km length trajectories.
Hurricane Underwater Gliders 12 Real-time transmissions into GTS, NODC, NDBC, IOSS, EMC, and through publicly available web pages. Navigated and successfully transmitted 100% of data under hurricane wind conditions (Bertha and Gonzalo). Data currently used by EMC and AOML to investigate potential effects of upper ocean temperature structure on hurricane intensification and on the response of the ocean to the passage of a tropical cyclone. Data used by operational hurricane forecast models. Second mission started on February 6, 2015, lasting until approximately May Third mission planned for 2015 hurricane season and will start in June/July 2015.

Glider plans and payload CICESE: Systematically survey the anticyclonic warm core eddies (WCE) that are detached from the Loop Current and arrive to the western flank of the GoM and dissipate there. Ideally, the research plan is to survey the WCEs from their liberation on the eastern GoM to their dissipation on the western GoM. The sensors on the Slocum gliders include: CTD (9), ADCP (7), RSI Microrider (5), Backscatter 700nm-CHla 470/695-CDOM (5), and O2 sensors (7). Slocum glider missions start During the whole 2016 we will be doing glider missions with two Spray gliders in collaboration with the Instrument Development Group(IDG)-Scripps Institution of Oceanography (SIO). Spray gliders are equipped with CTD, ADCP, and CHla/fluorescence and/or O2. TAMUG: Survey the Perdido region and the open GoM with a new hydrocarbon sensor (fluorescence) mounted on the Slocum glider along with DO and hydrography. The TAMUG glider has the following sensors: Sea Bird CTD, RSI Microrider, WetLabs eco triplet (Backscatter 700nm, CHla 470/695, CDOM 370/460), DO sensor (Rinko), Chelsea Technologies Uvilux hydrocarbon fluorescence sensor (255/360) Deployments in the open Gulf will begin in August 2015 and in the Perdido Region in 2016
