deployment Take a look at DBD pump from end of mission, at +-260 there might have been a hint of sliding.

rcurry
deployment The bear is in the igloo.
Recovered by Williams/Noyes/Enright on R/V Sea Dance.
Some goosenecks barnacles and surface slime, but otherwise relatively clean!
2016-05-25 11:17 GMT
rcurry
deployment Going for recovery today. Strong currents to SW -- going back to 900 m dives, single yos for another segment.
2016-05-20 18:08 GMT
rcurry
deployment Weather not looking great for pickup until later next week.
Set goto to ping-pong at Hydrostation (water depth > 3000 m) for a few days
2016-05-18 20:34 GMT
rcurry
deployment Turning science sensors off (in sample##.ma files)
Increasing pump throw to full to speed up a bit. Aiming for recovery on Saturday a.m. near shore
2016-05-05 20:40 GMT
rcurry
deployment 50+ kt gusts forecast for next 24-30 hours. Went to storm mode: CTRL-R wait 1 (gets gps, issues ctrl-w, and resumes)

double yos to 950, 8 hour no comms
2016-05-02 23:00 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Added m_battery_inst to SBDlist.dat
Changed u_dbd_sensor_list_xmit_control to 2

rcurry
deployment 18 Apr: 2nd MOCNESS tow canceled by rough weather. Anna turned back toward station keeping site, 950 m dives, double yos. Wrong waypts file sent to glider (12km BATS box) and went unnoticed for a day.
20 Apr: corrected goto file
Dive / climb speeds equal ~16.5 cm/s
Pump throw -190 / + 230
2016-04-18 21:30 GMT
rcurry
deployment Another AE/MOCNESS tow tonight. Anna sent NW to intersect anticipated ship track and heading during net tow.
2016-04-18 08:39 GMT
rcurry
deployment Transect ~10 km WNW out and back completed. Back to station keeping, double yos, sci sensors sampling dives only.
2016-04-17 09:57 GMT
rcurry
deployment Coordinating with Atlantic Explorer to follow in wake of ship during MOCNESS tow. single yos, shallower dives until a course / speed / time are determined.

deployment 26 * 30 = 780
780 * [.97 (shelf life) + .95 (end of life) + .95 (early drop off)] = 682 AH
2016-04-10 10:28 GMT
rcurry
deployment All science sensors sampling full time dives and climbs. Boosted pump throw to 230 / -190
2016-04-06 13:03 GMT
rcurry
deployment Changed yo20.ma to add buoyancy to climbs. File triggered a transfer problem (endless loop). Anna at surface for 40+ mins before I noticed.
Used zcancel to escape -> glider hung up iridium.
2016-04-04 13:11 GMT
deployment Removed 12 cc from pump throw on dives to equalize dn/up speeds

deployment 2nd underwater reset

2016-02-20 12:14 GMT
rcurry
deployment 2/16: Changed waypoints to 0.5 km box (evaluate station keeping ability)

2/20: Changed all sci sensor duty cycles to sample every dive (instead of alternate yos)

deployment u_science_low_power_mode 0 (enabled)
u_alt_min_depth 1100
2016-01-06 14:56 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Low power mode effectively running 50% of the time (upcasts) with science low power disabled.

This saved about 4-5% power.

Dives not in low power due to altimeter. 7.16 appears to suffer from u_alt_min_depth needing to be set, -1 in yo file does not enable LP mode.

configuration Software Version 7.16
2016-01-05 18:54 GMT

deployment Changed u_reqd_depth_at_surface to 4.5 m (pressure sensors look good)

Changed to low power mode, 30 sec.
2015-12-21 15:07 GMT
rcurry
deployment Reduced pump throw to +200 / -190 to save power and equalize dive/climb speeds
