Retasked to 1 hr surfacings for recovery in the morning

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-28 09:39:01Informational

Still have the occasional breach. Caught last surfacing to adjust goto; ping-pong points set up for today; recovery tomorrow.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-27 18:29:13Informational

Lowering climb-to bpump from 140 to 115; still trying to prevent breaching. Also set next waypoint 5 km south of current waypoint; expecting recovery Saturday a.m.

Lowering climb-to bpump from 165 to 140; still trying to prevent breaching.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-24 16:47:13Informational

Trying 35 m; see how Blue responds. Also setting climb-to depth to 5 m to try and keep GPS from turning on near surface. Waypoint "satisfying radius" was 3 km; changed to 300 m.

Seeing lower densities; trying 30 m dives.

Added new goto list as per Wendell. Depending on glider speed, we could possibly cover more ground, but being a bit conservative due to light ballast remaining battery power.

Added new waypoint 30 km south of deployment location: -7100.2020 4104.1280

2nd waypoint in goto list will need to be deleted after glider reaches current waypoint...or it can be changed and retasked at any surfacing.

Pynocline deepening; trying 25 m again.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-18 21:08:41Informational

Pycnocline is higher in the water column; changed dive-to to 20 m.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-14 21:08:13Informational

Dive to depth backed off to 25 m. u_pitch_max_delta_battpos left at .06

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-14 17:19:07Informational

u_pitch_max_delta_battpos at .04 worked well, so changed to .06. 3 hour missions to 30 m.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-14 14:12:32Informational

Set u_pitch_max_delta_battpos to .04 to try and get on pitch angle quicker.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-14 12:44:08Informational

Adjusted goto, diving to 30 m with 1 hour surfacings. May consider backing off on sampling rate to lower tbd size.

Created by: dkaragon @ 2012-09-12 12:06:39Informational

Changed TBD to state 5 sampling, hopefully this lowers file size but there is a chance it might not since hover/dive/climb are vague.

Next step is to just do upcasts, perhaps every upcast sample.

Limiting depth to 30 m; surface to 3 m.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-11 08:02:53Informational

Limiting to 35 m trying to avoid "sliding" behavior. Glider is making little to no progress; .5 km in last 3+ hours of flight.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-10 16:36:22Informational

Limiting depth to 40 m as per Wendell Brown. Considering boat trip to add weight to glider.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-10 10:28:07Informational

Glider is light; flying poorly - having significant trouble maintaining heading. Changing dive angle to 30, climb angle to 20, and limiting bpump to 190 on climbs.

Created by: haldeman @ 2012-09-07 16:46:56Informational

Initially pulled on board; weight added (washers, etc. zip tied to glider). Flying better; now off on 3 hour missions.
