Description/Abstract

A summary of the NOC Liverpool turbulence glider deployment that occurred between Tuesday 28th June and Monday 4th July 2011 is provided in this document. The general objective of the deployment was to hold the glider on station at a nominal GPS location of 53o 48”N, -4o 00”W to provide a series of glider based turbulence probe and CTD data profiles. These profiles were initiated when the glider reached a nominal depth of 40 metres and continued until the glider approached the sea surface. The glider deployment site was selected to be away from the influence of fresh water influx into the Liverpool Bay and in a
position that avoids scheduled shipping routes. The recorded glider data was compared with a seabed instrumentation frame that was deployed at the same nominal location. The instrumentation frame had a Seabird CTD and a 5 axis upward measuring ADCP with a vertical turbulence measurement capability installed. During the glider deployment cruise reference water samples and independent CTD measurements were collected for deployed instrumentation and glider sensor calibration purposes.
