Some draft imagery to show progress on the near-real time interpretation of robotic glider data. This example depicts the Navy MASSMO-3 exercise on the Malin Shelf in 2016.

A composite of several datasets; the surface tracks of individual gliders are shown as heavy coloured lines, their vertical temperature observations shown as fine lines.  These intersect a surface representing the September pycnocline as estimated from ODaT historical climatology.

Glider data are currently loaded into Paraview in a ‘1 csv per timestep’ form, as it is otherwise hard to get it to recognise timesteps from other data columns. The surfaces are processed in Hydrobase and Matlab before being imported into Paraview.
