deployment Increased pump -400/+250
Wpt due east (offshore)
Top inflection 5 m (its stalling out)

Should buy us until morning.

deployment ZOP seemed to fix the pressure sensor for the time being. Still acting a bit strange however.
2016-02-02 21:07 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Pressure sensor issue lingers after file hiatus. m_pressure showing 2 m shallower than sci_water_pressure.

Will ZOP again if it continues we should get dianostic segment, maybe bottom sample segment too to ground truth.
2016-02-01 16:13 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Some pressure sensor drift seen at surface, not sure if iridium related or not. May need diagnostic segment.

zero_oceaN_pressure

Backed off u_reqd_depth_at_surface from 2.5 to 3.5 just in case

deployment Looked into AD2 files:
3 hour missions had sporadic file sizes - could all be there just broken apart into smaller chunks
1 hour missions - ran today 1/28 - had normal sized files, although large
SEE: ru31_network_20160128T140230.log for 1/28 and prior ad2 file listing

AD2 GPS time out error at 80 seconds even though GPS received at 61 seconds. Noticed it during a 3 hour mission NLG: ru31-2016-014-1-206

2 hour missions resumed since they had more reliable AD2 file sizes.

deployment cop tickle abort was from typo? in mission

Extended cop tickle abend to 12 hours

Changed TBD to every 3rd yo (50 KB for last segment, too large)

SBD's still large and not sure why.

deployment Glider relocated further SE. All tbd's & sbd's transferred, along w/ several .ad2 files.

Current pump throw -400/+120 on 2 hr surfacings, switching to -400/+100 and 4 hr surfacings soon.

Glider getting washed inshore. tbd transfers off for now, pump going to +270/-330 for extra drive.
2016-01-13 20:40 GMT

deployment Ballast changed to +220/-280 to a)reduce drive a bit and b) make glider a bit "heavier".
