Animation of ocean temperature and salinity as measured by a Seaglider on a deployment from October 2019 to January 2020 off the coast of Guam. This is one of the three Seagliders from the Adaptive Sampling of Rain and Ocean Salinity from Autonomous Seagliders (Guam 2019-2020) dataset. The dataset can be accessed from the PO.DAAC Portal at https://podaac.jpl.nasa.gov/dataset/SEAGLIDER_GUAM_2019 (https://doi.org/10.5067/ASROS-GLGU1). The Seaglider is an autonomous profiler measuring salinity and temperature in the upper ocean. For the Adaptive Sampling of Rain and Ocean Salinity project, gliders sampled in an adaptive formation to capture the patchiness of the rain and the corresponding oceanic response in real time. Data samples are gridded by profile and on regular depth bins from 0 to 1000 m. Between successive profiles, the time interval was about 3 hours, and the distance about 1.5 km apart.
