All Notes (22)
Undervolts. Drifting; callback 1 hour until morning
Glider on 1 hour missions; 1.5 hour no comms for recovery in a.m.
Retasked glider to stay in non-trafficked line south of Barnegat Reef until recovery tomorrow morning.
Added wpt for Barnegat recovery on Saturday by Dave and Shannon; 39° 44.043\'N 74° 3.693\'W
Current correction back on, science off.
Battery still dropping. I think flying offshore in warm waters gave us a \'good curve\' and then coming on shore its cold, < 10 C, and now the battery voltage is back to normal.
Sampling only on the first yo.
Also inflecting at 8 m deep to stay a bit deeper. Back to 26 deg dive & climbs.
Battery curve has started dropping, to save power:
CTD on dive, climb, hover every 3rd yo, sample 1st yo (will check tomorrow to see if more drastic measures are needed)
OPTICS on dives, every 9th yo, sample 1st
6 sec downcast CTD
1 yo downcast all optics, 6 sec
New Waypoint towards Tuckerton.
Trying to save power:
Switched TBD to downcast data on all sensors
MA\'s to every 4th downcast on optics, all the time on CTD.
This may increase TBD size since the glider is diving so slowly.
SBD file appears larger than it should be, will investigate that next week.
Moved on to next waypoint.
30 deg dives, to combat dense slope water
Changed TBD to 4 sec every other up/down
Goto_l10 updated; 12 wpts (following 50 fathom isobath). Current correction turned on.
goto_l10 adjusted as per Scott. u_min_water_depth set to 0. Will turn current correction back on as we near 50 m isobath.
As glider nears 50 m isobath, will need to turn current correction back on, adjust waypoint, and change u_min_water_depth
Goto updated as per Scott. Mission changed to 100_tnu.mi; utc surfacing set for June to disable. Will now surface for hit a waypoint.
Wpt adjusted west to head back to 200 m isobath. Will revisit line south tomorrow. Current correction is off to allow for travel west w/ possible currents pushing north.
Adjusting goto_l10.ma; initial wpt 1 km west of inshore shallow OOI mooring, 2nd wpt southwest of Block Canyon; waiting on input from fisherman
(like clockwork, always in this area we get early returns)
Raised inflection depth a little due to some light sampling. Something we will need to watch.
Dimple appears to be from sand. Vacuumed and removed sand and seems to be fixed. High vacuum and storage placed for glider.
Wrinkle noticed in bpump middle right side (port for glider). It was easily rubbed out.
Dimple noticed on right upper side (port upper) that appears to be something behind the diaphragm.
