All Notes (13)
CTD cell cracked during mission. Unsure of when.
Corrosion noticed fore hull ring (fore side).
Forgot castaway for recovery cast.
Recovered by Nilsen Strandskov, Marcos (MARACOOS), and Colin Dobson aboard NJDEP boat out of Cape May inlet.
Done with mini-Eline's continuing on NJDEP path.
Trying dgain 5 from 6
Changed optics to every 3rd yo, saving power on the bonus transects.
Doing test segment to make sure that change works for optics.
Sampling was from surface returns, software 7.14 and new altimeter still showing surface return problem. Started occurring sub 15 m.
Some light sampling last night set reqd num hits to 1, turned off reduced usage mode, and max altimeter to 8 m. Filter is still on.
Noisy returns now, but no longer sampling. An optode and altimeter truthing segment.
m_water_depth looks to be < 1 m off
Changed steering parameters, the following seems to work well for most segments, there are some though that it doesn't. It seems hit or miss, but certainly is caused by surface inflection, post inflection glider swings to negative error which means to the left.
PID = 1.5, .01, 6; heading deadband -1; hardover holdoff 60 sec
Mission had wrong sample.ma arguement, corrected, puck data as of last night 10 EST.
Deployed by Josh Kohut, and summer interns aboard NJDEP vessel out of Highlands.
