Abstract: The physical and biochemical marine lagrangian dynamic generated by a mesoscale eddy field, was examined with two different physical and biochemical autonomous underwater vehicles (deep gliders, 1000m) in the framework of the FLUXES project. Deployments were hold South the Canary Islands waters between the 7th to 25th of July 2017 (435 km,). Langrangian descriptors (M function) were obtained from the 3D hourly current fields (1º/12, forecast +72h) provided by COPERNICUS IBI Regional System, and were integrated between 0 and 500m following the AUVs flying depth ranges. The hyperbolic path planning trajectories along the eddies field was then validated by both Dyna585 (physical) and Bio584 (biochemical) gliders on the ground (CTD, DVL, MR turbulence profiler, O2, Chla, and backscattering). Both AUVs were programmed allowing any bearing angle and integrating each 8 hours (gliders surfacing period), the ground true given by both glider locations each surfacing. Observations revealed the complexity of the vertical structure of the mesoscale eddy fields targeted. This study also highlights the utility of the gliders in support of the development and verification of mesoscale oceanographic features and its biochemical and physical effects in the first 1000m of the water column.
