deployment Since the last note we have been sampling just downcasts and no surface.
2017-04-11 13:31 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Downcast only sampling starting last night. Testing to see if sci logging bug eases up.
2017-04-10 12:05 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Science turned off for the night.

No logging bug on this last surfacing.

Will try just downcasts tomorrow morning.

deployment Science logging error prevalent now. Not sure if related to surface settings (sampling at surface, reduced u_reqd_depth_at_surface etc. Modified script on the fly has been failing, glider has had several long 30+ min surfacings.

Had trouble shutting down science:

put c_Science_on 0

184536 sensor: c_science_on = 0 bool


GliderDos N -1 >get sci_m_science_on
= 1.000000 bool

GliderDos N -1 >get m_science_on
= 0.000000 bool

GliderDos N -1 >put sci_m_science_on 0

184566 90 sensor: sci_m_science_on = 0 bool


GliderDos N -1 >report ++ sci_m_science_on m_science_on


GliderDos N -1 >put c_Science_on 3

184594 0 sensor: c_science_on = 3 bool


GliderDos N -1 >184594 1 sensor: m_science_on = 1 bool
Glider-Science software version match: 7.200000

deployment Changed surfac10 (nothing commanded) from 420 sec surfacing to 540. Sci logging bug was being triggered and there wasn't enough time to correct it. We had 2nd sci logging bug error just happen.

deployment 876088 50 sensor: u_abort_max_burn_time = 72000 sec
876036 41 sensor: u_abort_min_burn_time = 1800 sec
sensor: u_reqd_depth_at_surface = 3.5 m

!!!!!!!! should change those back when out of the plume !!!!!!!!!!!

zeroed ocean pressure

dkaragon
deployment Looked at DBD from previous mission: 125 m oil flow rate is roughly 6.9 cc/s

SA to ascension it was roughly 6.4 cc/s at 125 m
2017-03-23 01:01 GMT
dkaragon
deployment Glider aborted for sci logging --> beh abort, sat in gliderdos, total surfacing around 25 min. Script didn't catch it, likely because of disconnect, need to look into why script didn't catch.
2017-03-22 22:39 GMT
haldeman
deployment Post-RU29 meeting; changing waypoint to 7 S, 96 E. Also changing top inflection depth to 200 m.
2017-03-10 01:56 GMT
dkaragon
deployment 175 m top inflection, from 150 m

deployment Strange GPS hiccup 2 surfacings ago. DR location looked right, reported currents right, but wrong based on accepted GPS position, see below. Wasn't able to come up with what happened, emailed TWR to alert.

(argos shows glider is 'on track', red square in GE image)
DR Location: -1209.371 N 9857.802 E measured 367.649 secs ago
(this one is right, glider DR was working OK)

GPS TooFar: -1216.096 N 9859.563 E measured 43.688 secs ago
GPS Invalid : -1216.096 N 9859.563 E measured 68.913 secs ago
GPS Location: -1216.096 N 9859.563 E measured 64.124 secs ago
(need to check what our max water speed is but according to masterdata
about 11 km/hr is rough speed so at 13 hours were looking at over 100 km radius
for gps too far, certainly not seeing that there, distances are less than 15 km)

deployment Reset underwater. Missed early call in; caught it 1 a.m. Loadmission ru29.mi; sequence 1k_n.mi(5) Will monitor tomorrow.
2017-02-22 23:23 GMT
haldeman
deployment Changing top inflection depth to 150 m from 100 m as of next surfacing
2017-02-20 20:01 GMT
dkaragon
deployment 1st thruster climb segment:
ru29_2017_004_2_97
Result- thruster working
40% thruster = 25 - 30 cm/s climb
power increase - near negligible

Will try another segment to confirm the power result
2017-02-01 00:36 GMT
haldeman
deployment surfac10.ma ready to go to turn thruster back off at next surfacing (NOT copied to .cur.ma as of yet)
2017-01-31 23:10 GMT
haldeman
deployment Thruster test commencing tonight; 40% power for top 100 m when surfacing. Will add original surfac after this one has transferred.

deployment Back into low power mode and *almost back to first down last up sampling.
2017-01-30 15:20 GMT

deployment Sampled 1st and 4th yo full yo, low power mode off for the passing tropical storm. Ran this way for about 48 hours.

Transferred no header initial and lastgasp.mi missions.

a) added no header
b) change initial to swim mission
