When opening glider, pitch battery was not connected (not screwed in) -- glider flew fine during mission, no signs of pitch battery disconnected.

Plotting pitch data does show a change in dive pitch beginning on 3/17 14gmt - climbs unaffected though. Would suspect issues climbing if pitch battery really was disconnected during mission. Very strange.

Leak was in science bay aft - leak at puck (flbbcd-slk). SLK's are known to fail in cold cycling - glider kept outside in jeep night before deployment (-4C that night) and then deployed in 4C waters.
