Abstract : Data report from SLOCUM glider deployments in the Gulf of Mexico Mississippi Bight region, as part of the 2015-2016 Shelf-Slope Experiment: Shelf-Slope Interactions and Carbon Transformation and Transport in the Northern Gulf of Mexico: Platform Proof of Concept for the Ocean Observing System in the Northern Gulf of Mexico, conducted under a NOAA funded grant to the University of Southern Mississippi.The main successful deployment period was from 11 February, 2016 until 16 February, 2016. The glider made a total of 349 survey profiles within the geographical box bounded between 28.95N to 29.25N and 88.6W to 88.25W. The report includes glider locations, CTD data plots,Optical sensor data plots, and a listing of data files used, included for further analysis
