deployment Used chip's ping pong waypoints for overnight, will put on 1 or 1.5 hour before end of day.
2015-09-08 23:02 GMT
deployment Caught last surfacing to monitor - state 15 had science turning on all the time, so next surfacing state_to_sample is being backed down from 15 (all) to 7 (dive hover climb).
2015-09-08 22:05 GMT
deployment Added a couple new waypoints in close for recovery tomorrow morning.
2015-09-08 20:32 GMT
deployment !put u_science_low_power 30 (turns science off when not in use, but turns back on 30 seconds prior to sampling. Trying to find if we can get entirety of second cast.)
2015-09-05 14:31 GMT
deployment Changed tbdlist from every 3rd to every 1 to get 1st yo back too.
2015-09-04 20:31 GMT
deployment !put u_science_low_power 0 (turns science off when not in use)

Changed sampling to every 20th yo; approx. hourly profiles. ( 01, 27, and 48)

Recovery off Atlantic City planned for Wednesday.
2015-09-02 05:57 GMT
deployment Missed the hardcoded wpt on the goto update; all fixed and headed offshore now.
2015-09-01 23:33 GMT
deployment New goto added w/ additional 3 points north, ending outside of Atlantic City. Will pick up at next surfacing.
2015-09-01 14:08 GMT
deployment u_max_altimeter changed from 8 m to 5 m to get RU28 off the shoals.
2015-09-01 13:24 GMT
deployment No input for DEP and it hit onshore waypoint last night so gave it offshore reverse route waypoint.

Will need more beyond the current offshore!!
2015-08-27 17:56 GMT
deployment Just a note - RU28 is ballasted for 1021.25, which is a tad light for the offshore water (1025), but still seems to be flying fine.
2015-08-24 22:39 GMT
deployment Turned altimeter filter off as glider comes into shallow water near AC. (put u_alt_filter_enabled 0)
2015-08-20 02:26 GMT
deployment RU28's surfacing interval was set at 4800 seconds; unsure if this was a typo, crossed file, or an aneurysm on my part. Set this to 7200 seconds and let script handle transfer, which reset the goto behavior, sending it towards the first waypoint in the planned path. I am fixing this on the next surfacing, and RU28 will continue along its planned trajectory to the south.

2015-08-18 15:41 GMT
deployment Loaded mission ru28.mi for altimeter settings; may need to watch and turn altimeter filter off again in shallows; also may need to investigate pitch angles.

Setting SENSOR u_alt_filter_enabled(bool) = 1.000000

deployment Deployed this morning out of Belmar (Shark River) aboard NJDEP vessel by Nicole Waite and undergrads Sarah and Liam. Deployed near northern point, swimming toward 2nd waypoint due to error in goto_10. Adjusted to fix at next surfacing; will also go full depth, 2 hour missions. Ballasted to 1021.25; surface density 1020.8 according to glider CTD, but Nicole saw 1020 w/ SBE 19. Glider appears to be ballasted nicely. Deployment location: near 40 18.717N / -73 50.634W
