Abstract

Slocum Gliders have proven their usefulness in providing large volumes of high definition data but for the first time we were able to couple that with a FIRe system and look at the efficiency rates of phytoplankton in a hard to sample region of the world. The FIRe equipped glider allowed for high spatial and temporal resolution of physiological data vs. discrete samples taken with the traditional Go-Flo/Niskan bottle method and/or continuous flow through surface sampling via ships. We have identified numerous quality control measures that will need to be furthur explored for continued success of the sensor.
