The observations of bonpland glider on pirata deployment (Atlantic Ocean - Gulf of Guinea) are distributed in 4 files:

  • EGO NetCDF time-series (data, metadata, derived sea water current)

  • NetCDF profiles extracted from the above time-series

  • Raw data

  • JSON metadata used by the decoder

The following parameters are provided :

  • Practical salinity

  • Sea temperature in-situ ITS-90 scale

  • Electrical conductivity

  • Sea water pressure, equals 0 at sea-level
