Data Description

As of 2022, the different types of data files that are available are named as follows:
  • Realtime: Subset of data transmitted via Iridium while the glider is in mission, with basic automated processing steps and QA/QC applied.
  • Delayed: Full dataset collected by the glider and recovered post-mission, with all processing steps and QA/QC applied.
  • Level 0 (L0) data: Merged raw data files, with no interpolation and no processing.
  • Level 1 (L1) data: Time series or profile data with some interpolation and calculation of additional variables like salinity.
  • Level 2 (L2) data: Gridded level 1 data, on a depth-time grid.
