GulfHub is a data portal that compiles and makes publicly accessible physical oceanographic and hydrographic data from the Gulf of Mexico Loop Current field studies. It consolidates data from various sources and a variety of oceanographic platforms such as Acoustic Doppler Current Profilers (ADCPs), single-point current meters, ship- and air-deployed sensors, airborne current sensors, autonomous vehicles, high-frequency radars, buoyancy gliders, Lagrangian and card drifters, and satellites.
