A Slocum Glider was deployed in the eastern Gulf of Mexico off of Tampa Bay in July and August 2016. As the glider traverses its transit path, it makes measurements at various depths from ~2m to near the seafloor or up to 200m. While the glider is deployed at sea, it surfaces and communicates to an onshore control station at predetermined intervals. A decimated selection of vehicle and science measurement is transmitted during these surface transmissions, and the relevant data becomes available through a University of South Florida (USF) web site. After the glider?s recovery at the end of the deployment, the complete measurement suite is downloaded from the vehicle and processed, and also becomes available through the USF site as well as a national data archive.  The measurements in this data set include conductivity, temperature, depth, chlorophyll and gelbstoff fluorescence, and dissolved O2.  Other data sets for this deployment include acoustic tag telemetry receiver detections, passive acoustic recordings, and echsounder water column data. The glider was deployed on July 29, 2016 at the 30m isobath.  It traversed for a week to the NW before turning around and returning along a similar route to the SE.  It was recovered on August 12, 2016 near the deployment site. The intent was for the glider to follow the progression of the Gulfstream Natural Gas Pipeline with the intent of collecting water quality and acoustic data sets.\n\ncdm_data_type = TrajectoryProfile\nVARIABLES:\ntrajectory (M66)\ntime (seconds since 1970-01-01T00:00:00Z)\nlatitude (degrees_north)\nlongitude (degrees_east)\ngps_latitude (Measured GPS Latitude, degrees_north)\ngps_longitude (Measured GPS Longitude, degrees_east)\nvolume_of_buoyancy_pumped (cm3)\nbattery_position (in)\nheading (glider heading, radian)\nheight_above_sea_floor (m)\naverage_climb_rate (glider average climb rate, m s-1)\naverage_depth_rate (glider average depth change rate, m s-1)\n...
