Deployment of a Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) glider owned and operated by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO). This glider was deployed in the Gulf of Mexico. LBS gliders collect temperature and salinity profiles in the water column. These gliders were provided and operated by the Naval Oceanographic Office (NAVOCEANO) and are part of a larger effort to deploy and operate over 100 gliders simultaneously. Data collected by these Littoral Battlespace Sensing (LBS) gliders is assimilated for use in underwater ocean forecasts that support a wide range of naval operations.
