Found slackening currents. Added another waypoint NW of present one to get vehicle in currents heading back toward home. Dives to 920 m, full pump throw, current correction off.

Turned current correction off. Aiming west to break through strong currents

Course correction turned back on yesterday. Vehicle is being swept by currents around center of AC eddy. Will try heading SW then W to break out on western side where currents are weaker.

Turned off current correction. Surface currents > 1 kt

Passed BATS yesterday heading ~160deg.
On the edge of large anticyclone, sending NE ~120 km to survey across its diameter.

Back to full pump throw and heading N to Hydrostation

Created by: administrator @ 2017-03-25 07:40:46Informational

Full pump throw to combat strong currents

Encountered bug with science unable to send back files (all 3 gliders experienced it within 12 hours). Fix is to cycle power:
put c_science_on 0
put c_science_on 1
