SoMAS Ocean Glider Program

Cruise SBU01-7

August 5, 2022
Deployed ~5 miles south of Shinnecock Inlet from the RV Parker at 40o 45.141', 72o 25.237'
Mission started on August 5, 2022 at 1535 GMT
Recovered off Manasquan Inlet with TowBoatUS (Guerin Ireland, capt) at 40o 01.490', 73o 56.292'
Onboard on September 4, 2022 at ~1230 GMT

Weather and a faulty start delayed the 7th deployment, SBU01-07,  to August 5th.  After 29.8 days and ~600km, 540km along track, the glider was retrieved off Manasquan, NJ by TowBoatUS at 0730 EDT on September 5th.  Aside from the usual sensors, CTD, pH, O2, chlorophyll and transmission, a small Vemco fish-chip receiver was mounted on top of the glider.  Battery power was an issue on this deployment and changes in sampling and surfacing were made in an effort to conserve power.
