Glider MOOSE sections

The glider operations in the MOOSE network started to be deployed regularly in 2010 in the North Western Mediterranean Sea, thanks to the setup of national glider facilities at DT-INSU/Ifremer ( and with the support of the European project FP7-PERSEUS. Two endurance lines are operated: MooseT00 (Nice-Calvi; Ligurian Sea) and MooseT02 (Marseille-Menorca; Gulf of Lion). The all dataset here corresponds to raw data in the EGO format.
