Brief description

Between 2008 and 2015, 26 glider missions have been undertaken along the continental shelf of southeastern Australia. Typically these missions have spanned the continental shelf on the inshore edge of the East Australian Current from 29.5-33.5oS. This comprehensive dataset of over 33,600 CTD casts from the surface to within 5 m of the bottom in water depths ranging 25-200 m provides new and unprecedented high resolution observations of the properties of the continental shelf waters adjacent to a western boundary current, straddling the region where is separates from the coast.

We present gridded mean fields for temperature, salinity and density, but also dissolved oxygen and chlorophyll-a fluorescence indicative of phytoplankton biomass. This data is presented both as means and for each deployment. The results are gridded onto a grid of 16 cell of 0.25 degrees of latitude and 5 cells in longitude following the 20,50,80,110,140 ,200 isobaths across the shelf
.

Lineage

QCed delayed mode data from 26 glider missions operated by the IMOS Ocean Gliders facility were used in this dataset (https://imos.aodn.org.au/imos123/home?uuid=c317b0fe-02e8-4ff9-96c9-563fd58e82ac). Mean profiles were computed for each bin and each of the 26 glider missions. Mean profiles were also computed from the average over all glider missions.
