Added the following to all surfac files:
## For fighting freshwater lenses
b_arg: c_stop_when_air_pump(bool) 1
b_arg: c_use_thruster(enum) 3
b_arg: c_thruster_value(X) -0.05

Changed c_bpump_value from 1000 to 260 in surfac10

10 days in averaging 4.5 amphr/day with CTD, optode, and AD2CP sampling full time.

Telemetry test doesn't appear to have worked.

Presently we're seeing ~5MB/day or ~625 kB/segment. CICESE has seen ~340 kB/segment with a somewhat similar configuration so this is some confirmation our set up isn't totally bogus.

Testing a telemetry leg because averaging settings seem to only be making ~5KB/day. Haven't really run non-burst mode so not sure if this is OK or not.

150 m dive with the following config:

Also changed ad2cp.ini to have:

# The Maximum File Size attribute determines the maximum size of the xxx.ad2 telemetry file.
# This attribute limits the size of the xxx.ad2 telemetry file in 1 kilo byte blocks.
# n - maximum telemetry data file size in kilo bytes (default is a 10KB file size)
MAX_FILE_SIZE_KB: 200
