Data from GOVARS iRobot Seaglider AUV-SG-502 released into McMurdo Sound, Southern Ross Sea, 2010-2011. Temperature, salinity, oxygen, fluorescence, and optical backscatter data reported in 2-month deployment. Full resolution profiles (surface to 600 m, or near bottom of water column) of temperature, potential temperature, salinity, and dissolved oxygen from Seaglider equipped with CTD, oxygen, and optical sensors. The glider was released into the southern Ross Sea from the fast ice surrounding McMurdo Sound. The Southern Ross Sea, bounded by -77.436° and 169.517E°, and extending to -76.3403° and 180°; the glider made two long transects near the 76.5° line from the eastern side of the Ross Sea polynya to the dateline, and back; recovery was by the NB Palmer.
