Glider OTN201 was deployed 19-Sept-2013 off of Halifax at 11:34 local time by Adam, Kristen, and Jenna. The current mission is designed to take the glider to HL6 about 220 km SE of Halifax, then head West to the end of the OTN line, and follow the OTN line back to the the HL line then back to Halifax. The glider was equipped with a VMT to detect acoustically tagged animals. During the deployment the skies were sunny, the winds were about 10-15 knots from the West and waves were from 1-2 meters high.

A recovery was planned on Monday Oct 9th. The glider was near Sambro and put into last gasp awaiting to be recovered. Due to an increase in winds and a low wave period the recovery effort was aborted. The glider still had lots of battery so it was sent offshore with plans to recover on Thursday. The Scotian current as measured by the glider was about 0.2 m/s. Due to these currents we have decided to move the recovery location to just off of Shad Bay. This will take advantage of the Scotian current and put us in a recoverable location by Thursday.

On 9-Oct-2013, at 9:50 am (local) the waypoint was edited to help bring the glider home due to the Scotian current.
