The Challenger Glider Mission is a re-creation of the first global scientific ocean survey conducted by the HMS Challenger from 1872-1876. The goals of the mission are to establish a collaborative international network of autonomous underwater glider ports, to assess global ocean model predictive skill while contributing real-time profile data for assimilation in ocean forecast models by operational centers worldwide, and to crowd source student-based ocean research and discovery. This Indian Ocean leg of the mission begins in Sri Lanka and runs toward Mauritius. Dataset contains temperature, conductivity, salinity and density profile observations
