All Notes (17)
Recovered by Brian Buckingham, Ben Hodges, and Daniel Siguero out of Santa Cruz aboard RV Shana Rae
CTD cast performed with RBR 19:04 Z 3:08 EST 36 48 17" 121 59 42"
ru32 and ru38 very close together, performed at ru38 position
Bad GPS hit? like ru36 in caribb?
CTD first yo only
SWOT cal-val 1 day orbit ended, returning to Monterey Bay.
Glider aborted for undervolts, on pumping Fri morning.
Sag was under 12.5, lowered mission to 11.5
Was a little sagged at surface after abort but appears to have rebounded.
Interaction 6/24 20 gmt dive
Switching to cross track sampling. Lowered pump throw a bit to save power. Also changed all pitch angles to .45 rad
Average climb to depth 7 m (set to 8).
Gliders doing transect between S2 and P5 moorings for next 3 weeks, 1000m dives.
Gliders moved to Scripps moorings for cross-calibration and because Prowler were being serviced. Back to 1000 m for calibrations.
Missed call, investigate

Regarding bad sbdlist.dat:
All sbd files from 2023-04-20 were empty due to bad sbdlist.dat, so data available from 2023-04-21 through the end of the deployment.
SBDlist didn't transfer properly. Log showed it did, then it hung up on next file. File on glider was 1/5 the size and type reported an error.
Sent it a new list and sbd load seemed to work.
Deployed at the mouth of Monterey Bay Canyon by Brian Buckingham aboard TowBoatUS Santa Cruz
CTD only (no optode or ad2cp)
