Could not feel ctd pump in tank but it spun in lab post-dunk. May want to look at some of the last profiles to make sure OK.

Lithium performance post recovery:
Recovered 11/15/2019, analyzed 1/23/2020, 69 days ---> ~ 20% SD possible in those days
167 AH used as reported by glider

Batteries did not discharge evenly, see table below:

Total reported charge level = 60.9/227.9 AH ---> 227.9-60.9 = 167 AH
If we include SD that is about 152 used AH

Match level with glider 100% and 110% as reported by glider.

Emailing TWR to see if they should be discharging equally.

CTD cast with SBE-19 s/n 1581

Thrusting 40-50% @ 15-20 deg angles last 24 hours or so.

Power usage went from about 4 AH/day to 9 AH/day

Speed went up to 40 km/day

Turned science low power off, still duty cycling science sensors @ + 4 setting. Changed TBD

Created by: dkaragon @ 2019-11-13 19:53:47Alert

u_reqd_depth_at_surface 4

We can lower that for next deployments

Right now going to set it to 2.75

u_reqd_depth_at_surface 2.75

Created by: dkaragon @ 2019-11-13 03:57:42Informational

check reqd depth at surface for this glider, may need to set shallower

optics already at -4, changed CTD to -4 and u_science_low_power 15

In case we have to last another week out there.

Coulomb oddities, curious what they are, take a look post-recovery.

GPS could still rollover due to 'gps battery'. Don't sync time.

Steering problem could be West wind. Turning us 180 to where we want to go and control system overshooting cause of hardover fin.

Some wild steering segments surrounding ru33_2019_286_3_42

If this doesn't continue definitely worth a MBD/DBD analysis.

High winds but ru22 not affected much by it.

Strange heading error and every fin of +10 deg to stay straight (veering port). Result of +5 deg roll?

Set fin offset to +5 to see if it helps. Maybe ierror kicking in at some point but not in first couple yo's.
