All Notes (6)
ru05 with SB 0080 configured for CONVERGE/LTER 2014/2015 had the wrong calibration coefficients in the autoexec.mi file. See note below:
# 2015/09/10 firstname.lastname@example.org SB0080 was placed in glider for LTER(CONVERGE) 2014/2015 season. This payload has pucks BBFL2-337 and BB3-335
# The calibration coeffcients in the autoexec during those missions was for pucks BB3SLO-648 and BB2FLS-666
# 748, and 666 were associated with SB 0175 for California UCSB
# Changed coeffcients in autoexec.mi to the correct pucks, BBFL2-337 and BB3-335
# Changed ballast pump deadz width from 30 to 15 cc
Glider did some light bottom sampling coming over the 20 m ridge, changed to mostly shallow settings, primarily u_max_altimeter.
Coming back for 2nd run it got stuck ascending, likely kelp and was stuck for 12 hours. System reset and was recovered by Josh without an ejection weight.
Positioning for Palmer Station visit.
Increasing surfac40 to 1 hour for next surfacing and
Changing goto list to:
# LONGITUDE LATITUDE
1st NE leg it got washed into boating limits and near Outcast. Some light bottom sampling in 2 segments at about 30 m or so.
Drift at surface near islands was not favorable, and altimeter returned 30 m at surface. Flew to 10 m east and it cleared the islands, back flying now to regain line.
