Recovered by Nicole, Ailey, Ted, Chip on Arabella out of Tuckerton, NJ.

2 rosette casts and water samples done prior to glider recovery. Comparison CTD cast done using rosette CTD, SB19 s/n 1383 and ballast tank laptop.

Still some intermittent CTD pump issues. The pump has been resuming working on it's own (i.e. without a pilot cycling the pump via pumpfast pumpslow commands).

Science computer not acting well, not sure why. pH proglet needs some help?

Created by: dkaragon @ 2021-05-12 00:16:31Informational

Science went out service at the end of the previous surfacing. Came up this last surfacing and aborted for beh because of it. Science reached its limit of OS and wouldn't go back in service so upped limit to 10 and higher to attitude_rev

Resequenced and turned pH off at surface (sample MA).

Emailed TWR about science crashing during zr, should follow up post-recovery to get this issue fixed.

Came back on shelf, increased altimeter range and depth off bottom to prevent shelf collision. Waiting out currents on shelf.

Changed to SBDmin catered to 100 m yo's.

CTD pump stopped working again 2nd half of last night.

Tried pumpslow, pumpfast, pumpoff cycles again. Next segment data looks like the pump is working again.
Maybe getting clogged or something stuck in it? Turning CTD off at the surface -- state_to_sample 7

CTD pump Started working again. Only didn't work for maybe 1/2 a day, 5/6 pm to midday Friday.
Switched to every other yo TBD for more data and 2 hour missions.

Created by: waite @ 2021-05-07 16:11:27Informational

pumpfast, pumpslow, pumpoff a few times on ctd to try to clear any potential clogs that may be causing the ctd pump issues.

Pump appears to be getting worse. Quick look at history showed other unit 9417 had this issue?

There was a cast recently (last segment?) that looked like pump wasn't working.

u_reqd_depth_at_surface 1.85

Slowed glider down 200/-200 @ .4 rad pitch (since deployment). Slowing to keep pH and oxygen profiles more settle time. 3 hour missions from 2 hour.

ru30-2021-122-1-0 (0380.0000) initial shallow mission

ru30-2021-122-2-0 (0381.0000) - water sample 1 mission (single yo's)

ru30-2021-122-3-0 (0382.0000) - water sample 2 mission (single yo's).

Boat took 2 water samples, not sure how they were timed with the 2 missions.

STILL NEED TO GET NBD from some of those segments.

Lightly bottom sampled during deployment, could be altitude_rate.

Altimeter readings were about ~2.25 m shallow based on pressure and boat depth finder of 17 m. Looked into this deeper and found scale factor for speed of sound would not fix it. Only an offset would properly do so. mara_02 deployed same time, similar offset of 2 m. Same with ru34 early 2021 mission offset of 2.5 m. Not sure why this is. Altimeter hits are constant level as glider dives meaning speed of sound is fairly close and its consistent and accurate, just offset. Wonder if it has something to do with the voltage divider circuit or A2D.

Altimeter filter turned off and m_altitude_rate set to -1

u_reqd_depth_at_surface 2.75

Deployed by Nicole Waite and Chip Haldeman aboard the R/V Rutgers out of Tuckerton, NJ

Deployed with MARACOOS_02. Comparison CTD cast done with SB19 s/n 1581 and ballast tank laptop.

Surface and near-bottom water samples collected with Niskan bottle.
