RU16 is almost at the next waypoint. The southeastward velocities over the shelf are helping the glider fly very fast (24 km in 18 hours).
After reaching the waypoint, the glider will follow the green line in the plot above, coordinating with Eric Powell's fisheries cruise. The salinity section below reveals lots of small scale structure over the shelf. The glider is now in waters nearly homogeneous, with gradients only in the near-bottom layer.
