All Notes (11)
BB2FL puck may have completely died, will need to re-test upon arrival.
Equipped with SB:
Recovered by Travis Miles aboard RV Araon, concluding research cruise.
Switched to double yo's this morning, pretty shallow, so lowering pump throw to help with power.
Re-tasked to go around 'the rock', and to head into slightly deeper waters. Will speed up again once out of the shallows.
From 400 cc to 350 cc (150 C, -200 D)
Save some power.
Power draining fast, +- 200 cc ballast, made the turn into the canyon. Will discuss with Travis shutting optics down at depth, and maybe slowing glider down a bit more.
Accidentally went backward 1 segment towards wrong waypoint. Lining up for along ice shelf run. Will likely NOT surface for waypoints and switch to single yo's during this time.
Sampling seems fixed disabling the bb2fl
Still sampling problems, one small NLG mentioned bb2 device, so turning it off overnight to see if that is the culprit. Either uart problem or science computer still overloaded.
Science appeared overloaded. Changed sample MA's to 1 sec sampling from 0. Confident that will alleviate load. Diving to full depth, ~ 800 m
After leak in Antarctica entire glider was sent to Webb on 4/30/10. Webb is going to investigate CTD leak as well as retrofit the glider with new pump and digifin. All repairs should be covered under warranty.
