deployment New mission, added another UTC surfacing around midnight PST. Both gliders were falling behind at one surfacing transfer.

dkaragon
deployment Has been doing well south 2 waypoints.

Trying the box again.
2012-08-23 21:23 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Next surfacing heading onshore and then south at 26 deg battpos, need to undo the altimeter changes first.

deployment +- 35 deg pitch, CTD no longer on at surface

deployment 1 km clockwise box

dkaragon
deployment Try 500 m box during the day, and if it doesn't work try the 1km box tonight into tomorrow.

2 hour no_comms

dkaragon
deployment Trying just southern 500 m box waypoints, have a suspicion it is getting tossed north on the northern leg of the box.

deployment Changed SBD and TBD to better suit 1-2 yo's per segment. TBD sending back 2 full yos only of CTD data.

dkaragon
deployment Moved to 100 m box, ru 2, 8/12 am. Accidentally had 500 m watch circle so glider surfaced quite a bit Sunday night. Fixed watch circle and gave it official waypoints for 500 m box circling.

Turned AM file transfer script on.

Glider a bit out of the box, not sure why, will continue to watch its progress back into the box.

deployment Running Nicole 500 m box.

Interesting tilt of box I think due to overestimated speed (due to AD)?
2012-08-07 13:53 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Running Nicole's set of waypoints, they look good, might be able to decrease box size.

Also running script to only transfer during UTC surfacing.

dkaragon
deployment Buoyancy pump abort. I set battpos typo which cuased the glider to climb at 0 deg pitch. Glider thought it wasn't moving fast enough and tried to re-dive. Pump was seized on retraction.

Fixed battpos and sent back down.
2012-08-04 16:30 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Waypoints to come in along the test line, heading due east.
2012-08-04 15:57 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Fixed battpos flying, -.48 D, .5 C

Need to test currents to make sure glider can stay up with them, hoping the east leg tells us this.
