deployment mission home.mi
UTC surfacings at 10am, 12pm daily (surfac51,52)
UTC surfacing mission end at 11am daily (surfac50)
2hr surfacing timer (surfac60)
no comms mission end 2 days (surfac42)

dive to 40m, infinite yo's
ping-pong waypoints off of A.C.

Drift.mi basically lastgasp.mi with shorter (5min) overtime... goal to abort and have glider stay at surface.

sent RU30 on missions, swimming inshore, shallow dives.
sequenced [home.mi(2) drift.mi(10)] 4 times home.mi(20)
2018-05-22 15:15 GMT
deployment Recovered by Chip H, Laura, Liza Fairbanks out of AC aboard NJDEP.

Performed pre and post recovery casts with in between water sampling for UDEL group. Glider did double yo's entire time whilst recovering roughly 9 to 10:30 EST (shallow.mi missions)
2018-05-21 01:52 GMT
deployment hovering went well but would not move pump to adjust for some reason. should look into that
also some pitch oddities
2018-05-20 04:58 GMT
deployment Knocking optics back to -8; should still get one profile per segment. Planning to turn off, but would like to see where the 2 layer system breaks down.
2018-05-20 03:35 GMT
deployment Hover missions to 30 m (below tcline)
ru30-2018-139-1-0 (0133.0000)
ru30-2018-139-0-0 (0132.0000)

Changed to 2 hour and back onshore for recovery.
2018-05-19 19:31 GMT
deployment RU28 accel script on as glider will be hitting the midshelf box.
2018-05-18 15:11 GMT
deployment Still 16 km to go, but goto w/ box for station keeping queued and ready to be picked up at next surfacing.
2018-05-17 14:57 GMT
deployment oxy, flbbcd to -4 duty cycle from -2 as per G. Saba/T. Miles. Should still match current tbdlist, but save a little more power during transit. 2-3 profiles per segment, depending on depth (2 right now @ ~10 yos/segment)
2018-05-16 15:41 GMT
deployment oxy, flbbcd to -2 duty cycle from 2 (matches to TBD)
2018-05-16 15:40 GMT
deployment Back to -1 yo's at 2 hour no comms

200 cc climb from 150 (back on shelf)

Script for normal altimeter settings

! u_alt_MIN_DEPTH 2 !
2018-05-16 00:25 GMT
deployment Had an error in the goto file; hardcoded to go to waypoint 1, but only one waypoint listed (waypoint 0)
2018-05-15 19:20 GMT
deployment ***Don't forget u_alt_min_depth when coming back on shelf! Masterdata default is 2 m
2018-05-15 18:26 GMT
deployment sbd's ~20k, tbd's ~34k for 3 yos. Will pick up 4 yo ma on next surfacing.

Current plan:

~8 pm tonight (post 24 hours on station), retask to inshore stationkeeping waypoint, reducing optics and optode sampling to every other. files in directory; just need to copy to .ma and .ma.cur
2018-05-15 16:26 GMT
deployment Swapped script to ru28 accel to get pH data at surface.
2018-05-15 16:03 GMT
deployment Tx'ed new tbdlist.dat; put c_science_on 0; put c_science_on 1

Tx'ed new sbdlist.dat; sbd load sbdlist.dat

Checked yo, values in notes already sent. Checked u_alt_min_depth, 100 looks to be good so far. Leaving sensor script on in case we need to adjust to 125.

Not adding 4th yo yet.
2018-05-15 05:48 GMT
deployment Dive and climb speeds went haywire, appears to just be dense 100 + meter water off shelf. Trying to equalize dive and climb speeds for pH.

Increase dive angle to 27 since its running shallow, might need 28.

Decrease climb pump from 2xx to 150 to slow climb speeds.

False hits
!!!!!!!!!!!!! U_ALT_MIN_DEPTH 100 !!!!!!!!!!!
might need more, 125 +

New tbd and sbd should go over ASAP for 2nd cast sbd and tbd data.

3 yo's for roughly 2 hour missions, add 1 more after we get verticals squared.
2018-05-14 04:20 GMT
deployment retasked with new goto for station keeping at offshore location
2018-05-11 15:11 GMT
deployment Back offshore.
2018-05-08 21:07 GMT
deployment turned on accel delay script to collect surface ph data while station keeping at station keep # 2
2018-05-08 03:51 GMT
deployment The 3 yo segments from Sunday were CTD only no other sensors. It seemed like CTD still had a lot of noise.
2018-05-06 18:02 GMT
deployment Hover mission. 23 seed, it did OK slow descent starting at 23 m
Vehicle Name: ru30
Mission Name: 200H_N.MI
Mission Number: ru30-2018-125-0-0 (0128.0000)
2018-05-06 14:24 GMT
deployment Starting on segment ru30-2018-122-2-39 (0127.0039) slowed down the glider -150/150 cc to see how pH responds.
2018-05-04 17:43 GMT
deployment ru28 accel script modified for 5 min delay and enabled to gather pH data at surface.
2018-05-03 23:24 GMT
deployment had wrong sensor_type, no pH data logged until this point.

Shortening TBDlist.dat again, still large, every 3rd yo now. Adding more m_pressure record similar to TBD in case CTD pressure sensor noise is too much to overcome.

deployment CTD pressure is noisey, haven't seen it this noisy before. Explains noise in pH readings in the tank. Might have to smooth it or use glider pressure.
