Altimetry Is Our Best Bet

Tuesday, July 1st, 2008

 Judging from these plots, especially depth verses temperature, we noticed shallow surface temperatures. At about 40 meters, the temperature drops off significantly. So far the altimetry has been reliable for forecasting, I think we should continue to have faith in this data.

We did a one hour segment with the CTD on, unfortunately, we did not get reliable CTD pressure readings. Glider pressure readings are consistent, however, the plot did not reproduce as well as I would have liked.

Clearer plots and CTD data will be coming soon.
