Gliding around the Ice
So this week our assignment was to develop a plan for the plots we are going to be producing this semester. We are in charge of looking at glider operations for Palmer Station from 2001-2011. Our focus is to look for a change in the thermocline.
Our goal for the semester is to be able to plot 1) 3D temperature transects in the canyon 2) temperature for 2010-2011 3) temperature for January and February from 2001-2011 4) Salinity for January and February 2001-2011 5) Density for January and February 2001-2011. We also may look at salinity and density for the 2010-2011 field season. We are hoping to look at the changing dynamics of these three variables over time both on a short time scale (one field season) and a longer time scale (2001-2011).
