Optode 970 appears to be working on return, not completely sure what caused it to stop working.
Likely the cable, some light separation noticed at cable bulkhead -->cable connection
Recovered by Travis Miles and Nicole Cuouto out of AC aboard USCG Cutter Finback.
Cargo ships and tugs made me nervous about offshore transect; retasking to inshore by shoal. RU07 is performing well in the shallows. :-) Will burn some battery hanging out in shallow water, but recovery is tomorrow.
Appears optode has died. Errors reported in .mlg and u4stalk 0 9600 29 connects, but no data is returned. Possible voltage board failure? We've seen this before. Disabled in proglets.dat and sample27.ma. Didn't change tbdlist.dat or nbdlist.dat; oxy lines ignored.
Abort: science_super returned an error. Still in use; tx'ing goto_l10 and restarting mission
new goto; 2 wpts. Heading offshore for storm then back inshore for recovery Thursday.
# LONGITUDE LATITUDE
.5 m deeper, 3.5 off bottom
3 hour missions, winds this week will push shelf southward, keep ru07 out of shipping lanes & DE waters.
Skipped current offshore waypoint, onshore next.
Buoyancy pump is OOD chatter with 10cc deadz, set it back to 30 at surface.
u_max_altimeter 15 (some light sampling, surface reflections)
Turned of altimeter filter, boat measurements of depth agree more with unfiltered hits. Also slight bottom sample showed false bottom 2-3 m deeper.
Also set number of hits required to 1 and set altimeter_rate to -1 just in case.
Lowered climb_to by 1.5 m to 4.5 and dive to altitude to 4 off bottom (in hopes the altimeter now gives a better bottom).
1.5 hour missions, soon to be 2 as soon as altimeter settings look good.
Deployed by David Aragon and undergrads Chelsea and Alexandra out of Belmar aboard NJDEP.
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.
