More power saving, sampling just first yo/downcast ctd/optics and changed TBD to reflect that.
Backed off a meter off the bottom, we were *just grazing the bottom. ru22_2013_271_0_223 shows about 3.5 m discrepancy between CTD pressure and glider pressure + altitude. GE depth tends to agree more with CTD pressure that area.
Some light bottom sampling, should look into pressure sensor accuracy using that data.
u_max_altimeter 7 m to help with bottom sampling, and reqd num of hits to 1
Sampling optics every 4th downcast.
Turned CC off to get closer to shore.
Due to weather and recovery position, sampling optics every other downcast and CTD not at surface.
ru22 pressure sensor needs a re-cal.
Trying a CW triangle, glider can not fight southerly off-shelf currents. 160 km line, should bring it near end of battery...
Fighting currents, changing TBDlist to optics downcasts, ctd up/down, both every other yo.
Deployed by Nilsen Strandskov out of Chincoteague.
Deployed with VEMCO SN 1168373, ID 26419
No longer has lithium ion batteries. Still wired for them but those batteries are considered no longer usable.
Entire glider sent to Webb on 4/30/10 to be retrofitted with rechargeable lithium batteries.
