This is an .nc file of data collected by Seaglider 532 in the southern Drake Passage in autumn to winter of 2016. The temperature and salinity data were collected by unpumped CTD (Seabird), the dissolved oxygen data by an Aanderaa optode, and the optical backscatter data by an ECO puck (WetLABS). The collection dates were between May 10-August 20, 2016. The data are gridded at 5 meter resolution in depth.
