Upper Ocean Hydrography across the Loop Current Eddy Poseidon - MLIPoseidon

This dataset contains interpolated hydrographic data collected by the Group of Monitoring the Ocean with Gliders (GMOG;https://gliders.cicese.mx) using Seagliders deployed in the central and western Gulf of Mexico during 2016 and 2017, as part of the project “Implementación de redes de observación oceanográficas (físicas geoquímicas, ecológicas) para la generacioón de escenarios ante posibles contingencias relacionadas a la exploración y produccioón de hidrocarburos en aguas profundas del Golfo de México” of the Gulf de Mexico Research Consortium (CIGoM;https://cigom.org), funded by CONACYT‐SENER‐Hydrocarbon Fund, Mexico”.

The data comprises temperature, salinity, and potential density interpolated onto a regular grid of 2km and 2m of horizontal and vertical resolution, respectively, from near-surface (2m) down to 200m depth using the optimal interpolation method of Barnes (1964;1994). The horizontal and vertical decorrelation radii were of 30 km and 10m, respectively. Also includes vertical sections of density across a Warm Core Ring from a regional numerical simulation of the Gulf of Mexico Nucleus for European Modelling of the Ocean (NEMO; https://www.nemo-ocean.eu/). Numerical runs were performed by J. Jouanno researcher at Laboratoire d’Etudes en Geophysique et Oceanographie Spatiales (LEGOS; http://www.legos.obs-mip.fr/). The glider data were curated by the J. G. Correa Pérez as a part of his of the PhD research conducted in the Centro de Investigación Científica y Educación Superior de Ensenada (CICESE) and used, together with numerical data, to diagnose mixed-layer instabilities across the Loop Current Eddie (LCE) Poseidon in the central and western Gulf of Mexico. Hereafter, this dataset is referred as MLIPoseidon.

The MLIPoseidon dataset can also be downloaded via Zenodo (http://doi.org/XX.XXXX/zenodo.XXXXXXX), which is a public repository that stores research data in CERN’s data center for as long CERN exists. See Pérez et al. (2021) “Mixed-layer instabilities across a Warm Core Ring and adjacent cyclones from glider observations” for details and proper acknowledgments for MLIPoseidon dataset. Pérez et al. (2021) was submitted to Journal of Geophysical Research on April 29 2021.
