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.

Switching to cross track sampling. Lowered pump throw a bit to save power. Also changed all pitch angles to .45 rad

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.

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.

Created by: dkaragon @ 2023-04-21 12:20:15Informational

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.
