Deployed 2016-01-22 at 17:23 UTC from the Eastcom with Kat, Sue and Adam. The wind was blowing ~15-20 kts from the NW. We deployed a bit further from shore to avoid lobster traps. The purpose of this mission is to fly alongside otn200 to do a comparison between both CTD's. The glider will head to Emerald basin and then return. otn200 was deployed at the same time a few 100 meters from dal556.

For the first two surfacings the gliders headed inshore. This was because there was an initial waypoint set inshore to provide a good path away from buoys as the glider made it's way offshore. But since we deployed further offshore than expected we had to adjust for these waypoints. The adjustment was made ~2130 UTC.

The gliders were getting pushed pretty far West due to the Scotian current so we sent a new waypoint further south to adjust the gliders and get it to continue South.

2016-01-29: The gliders have veered quite a bit from each other for this mission, but last night they have met up at holding position. Later today I'll send otn200 on its way offshore and dal556 to shore.

All science sensors were shut off and transfer of science data at surface stopped on DAL556 to conserve battery.

Surfacing was changed to every 2 hours and the glider was set to go between two waypoints awaiting for recovery.
