A calm day, which is always cool

The glider is making good progress towards it's inland waypoint.  We have shut down one of the EcoPucks, the goal here is to conserve power and try make sure we have plenty of power to loiter for recovery.  We shut down the one puck that was only measuring backscatter (a optical proxy for particle type and concentration).  The puck we have kept on, measures one wavelength of backscatter and two wavelengths of fluorescence. Many of the features we saw on the shelf offshore transect.  We see complexity in the offshore temperature, salinity, and chlorophyll.
