deployment Undervolts. Drifting; callback 1 hour until morning

deployment Battery still dropping. I think flying offshore in warm waters gave us a 'good curve' and then coming on shore its cold, < 10 C, and now the battery voltage is back to normal.

Sampling only on the first yo.

Also inflecting at 8 m deep to stay a bit deeper. Back to 26 deg dive & climbs.
2012-01-02 02:46 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Battery curve has started dropping, to save power:
CTD on dive, climb, hover every 3rd yo, sample 1st yo (will check tomorrow to see if more drastic measures are needed)
OPTICS on dives, every 9th yo, sample 1st
2011-12-30 20:01 GMT
dkaragon
deployment TBD:
6 sec downcast CTD
1 yo downcast all optics, 6 sec

New Waypoint towards Tuckerton.
2011-12-29 16:50 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Trying to save power:
Switched TBD to downcast data on all sensors
MA's to every 4th downcast on optics, all the time on CTD.

This may increase TBD size since the glider is diving so slowly.

SBD file appears larger than it should be, will investigate that next week.


Moved on to next waypoint.

deployment 30 deg dives, to combat dense slope water

deployment Changed TBD to 4 sec every other up/down

Haldeman
deployment Goto_l10 updated; 12 wpts (following 50 fathom isobath). Current correction turned on.
2011-12-23 19:21 GMT
Haldeman
deployment goto_l10 adjusted as per Scott. u_min_water_depth set to 0. Will turn current correction back on as we near 50 m isobath.
2011-12-23 16:11 GMT
Haldeman
deployment As glider nears 50 m isobath, will need to turn current correction back on, adjust waypoint, and change u_min_water_depth
2011-12-23 16:09 GMT
Haldeman
deployment Goto updated as per Scott. Mission changed to 100_tnu.mi; utc surfacing set for June to disable. Will now surface for hit a waypoint.
2011-12-22 01:13 GMT
Haldeman
deployment Wpt adjusted west to head back to 200 m isobath. Will revisit line south tomorrow. Current correction is off to allow for travel west w/ possible currents pushing north.

haldeman
deployment Adjusting goto_l10.ma; initial wpt 1 km west of inshore shallow OOI mooring, 2nd wpt southwest of Block Canyon; waiting on input from fisherman
2011-12-20 15:33 GMT
dkaragon
deployment u_min_water_depth 40

(like clockwork, always in this area we get early returns)
2011-12-14 20:57 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Raised inflection depth a little due to some light sampling. Something we will need to watch.
