Glider was deployed by Adam Comeau and Kaila Lawton at ~14:00 UTC. Route is through Emerald Basin and back. Anticipating observation of the spring bloom.

Adam set the minimum depth at which the altimeter samples to 30 m by using this command during the 17:25 surfacing. !put u_alt_min_depth 30

I put a new GOTO_L10.ma file on the Bugs dockserver to give to the glider once it comes up for the 5:30pm surfacing. This new GOTO_L10.ma file has three waypoints, the drop-off location, station 4.5, and the pickup location. It is set to begin at wpt#1 (which is the second on the list), and finish once the wpt list is complete.

At the 5:00 pm surfacing I updated the maFile to the one described above. Here were the commands I used. #Update the GOTO file >>!type \mafiles\GOTO_L10.ma #To view current GOTO file >>!dockzr GOTO_L10.ma #To upload new GOTO file >>!type \mafiles\GOTO_L10.ma #To view updated GOTO file >>ctlr-F #To tell the glider to reread GOTO file unpause the script

During the last surfacing, all the science data are located at the surface. I checked the most recent data file, and it appears the data did do its proper yo's and that we have collected data during them. So hopefully the problem is with the code to make the figures, and not something glider related.

Looks like both the .kml file and the website did not pick up the new waypoints

At the 11:30am surfacing I changed the min altimeter depth to 2 meters (which is how it was initially, and shut off the reduced usage mode with the following two commands. >>!put u_min_water_depth 2 >>!put u_alt_reduced_usage_mode 0

Just checked the marine forcast, and its predicting waves in the 4-6 meter range at the glider's location today ~ 43.7 N, 62.6 W

Changed u_alt_reduced_usage_mode to 1, and u_alt_filter_enabled to 0. Going to try the last experiment on our way back in to shore.

Big pile of false-bottom hits. The raw pinger data should be interesting.

The glider took 6hrs to cover 3.5 km on its last leg, which is a bit worrysome. It surfaced normally for timeout and was 450m from waypoint. Jon d/led files, reset the filter variable and put the glider into lastgasp to await its morning pickup.
