deployment Glider recovered by Tom Wazniak, UMARYLAND.

dkaragon
deployment Glider was unable to punch through on upcasts through freshwater plume. Glider pump was limited on positive side, increased it back to maximum and glider looks to be doing better.

dkaragon
deployment Beginning to re-task to Kiptopeake recovery, likely next week. Trying to stay north and get inshore against currents to the ESE.
2011-04-22 17:27 GMT
dkaragon
deployment CC back on.

dkaragon
deployment Turned CC off, major tides from full moon??
2011-04-17 12:42 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Turned CC back on 4/16 due to storm.

dkaragon
deployment Turned current correction off on notoriously wobbly line
2011-04-15 14:12 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Switched to 100_tnu.mi for UTC lunchtime surfacing.
2011-04-12 18:39 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Decreased pump throw on climbs a bit more to slow ascents. Also gave it hardcoded waypoint list for entire MARCOOS run, after it hits waypoint, goto_l10.ma should be changed to -1 for memory.
2011-04-11 15:52 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Glider doing about 120 KB / surfacing.

~ 3% battery use / day is a good rate, no need to adjust optics sampling at this point.

Reduced pump through to + 175 cc on climbs to slow upcast down.

dkaragon
deployment Abort was for GPS, resequenced, did not look at MLG.
2011-04-08 19:55 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Sampling both pucks every other downcast. We will see how the power looks at end of the e-line. Might have to switch to every 4th downcast which is more like what we did last mission.

dkaragon
deployment Changed u_pitch_max_delta_battpos .04 to increase pitch control, changed yo to fly by pitch angle not battpos (was using the one from last deployment)

Changed tbdlist to write puck data on every cast in anticipation of duty cycling pucks.

changed nbdlist to get rid of sensors not installed to eliminate annoying error message. Also uncommented the pucks so puck data goes to NBD now.
