Glider-based O2 and CO2 Observations from the Labrador Sea

I finished my MSc. and also starting a new job as a Research Engineer at MUN to continue our glider work!!!!

My MSc. research deals with methods of synchronizing mooring and glider data as a strategy to test and do data QC on new types of sensors that have not yet proven themselves in the field through inter-comparison. This project was funded through the Ventilation, Interactions and Transports across the Labrador Sea (VITALS) program were several gliders and a vertical profiler mooring, the SeaCycler were deployed into the Labrador Sea. In my research I evaluated new pCO2 optode sensors on a glider through field deployments and experiments in the lab to characterize their performance. I also looked at cool CTD and Oxygen data from gliders, moorings, profiler and other types of platforms. If your interested you can find my thesis attached to this post!
