Adam, Kacie and Sue deployed the glider at 12:48 pm local time. There was lots of fog, light winds and some rain. The hyperpro and water samples were not taken because of a risk of thundershowers in the afternoon.

In anticipation of Hurricane Arthur, we are going to get the glider to fly back to Emerald Basin into deeper waters. The waypoints were updated to fly a triangle pattern in waters about 200 m deep

Today I moved the triangle waypoints a bit closer to the glider, in order to monitor the area for ~12 hours before the hurricane comes. Also, I stoped the glider from surfacing every waypoint. Now it will just surface every 6 hours and for no comms.

Yesterday I deactivated live data file transfers to minimize the time the glider spent at the surface during the post-tropical storm. Today I reactivated the file transfer, so expect a long surfacing time at the 10:20 am (local) surfacing because the glider has a backlog of files to send.

Today I updated the waypoint list to get the glider to run a bit offshore onto emerald bank, then back to shore for an estimated recovery date of 15-16 of July.

On the 14-July-2014 at 10:15 pm local time, the ma files were changed to assist in recovery. The glider is now set to surface every hour and follow a triangle pattern.
