The Ocean Archive System searches our original datasets as they were submitted to us, not individual points or profiles. If you want to search and retrieve ocean profiles in a common format, or objectively analyzed fields, your better option may be to use one of our project applications. See: Access Data

Title:Physical trajectory profile data from glider ru26d deployed by Rutgers, the State University of New Jersey in the Southern Ocean from 2016-02-01 to 2016-03-07 (NCEI Accession 0153547)
Abstract:The purpose of this glider mission is to take cross sections of temperature and salinity in the continental shelf near Palmer Station. The Long Term Ecological Research (LTER) program in Antarctica is a long term study focused on understanding how the marine system regulates the ecology of the West Antarctic Peninsula. The project is focused on how the ecology is changing given the West Antarctic Peninsula is the fastest winter warming place on Earth.

The National Centers for Environmental Information (NCEI) received the data in this archival package from the Integrated Ocean Observing System's National Glider Data Assembly Center (IOOS NGDAC). The IOOS NGDAC received the data in one or more netCDF files comprising an entire glider deployment. The data are measurements of physical oceanographic properties such as temperature, salinity, conductivity, and density. The IOOS NGDAC checked the files for compliance to their netCDF file convention, aggregated the files into a single netCDF file, and then submitted the file to NCEI for long-term preservation.
