deployment Testing canceled, glider appears on the light side and is density bouncing, not impacting bottom.

deployment Did some bottom sampling last night (I think, hope its not density bouncing). Going to run some single dive tests to test altimeter accuracy / pressure sensor accuracy.

CHANGED SBDLIST AND TBDLIST FOR MORE DATA, MUST CHANGE BACK

deployment That setting seems to work for now. Should investigate tuning the allowable vert vel so that we can lower the timers for turning around in shallow water.

deployment Glider placed on 2 hour missions. It appears to be abandoning its dives and climbs early due to perhaps thinking the depth is not changing. Tried backing off the arguments in yo10 file from 30 sec to 60 sec to 240 sec.

If that gets it yo'ing correctly, will proceed with investigating/checking the setting for:
u_hovering_frac_nom_dive_rate(nodim) 0.25

Pitch needs some tuning, perhaps tomorrow once we're consistently yo'ing.
