This MARACOOS glider mission will survey the continental shelf, shelfbreak, and submarine canyon regions in the southern Mid-Atlantic Bight. The goal of the mission is to conduct spring-time hydrographic survey, quantify the water masses and the configuration of the shelfbreak front, and test the LISST sensor in a submarine canyon setting. The glider is scheduled to be deployed on Tuesday, May 1, 2018 and recovered on Monday May 14, 2018. The glider will be deployed near the 35 m isobath at mid-shelf off Wachepreague VA fly offshore toward Washington Canyon. It will conduct a few repeated transect at the canyon head region and fly back inshore toward Wachepreague VA for recovery.
