BOND was deployed on 2017-06-02 15:38 UTC off of Cape Sable, NS with using the boat, Jessa and Austin with Garth Goreham as the captain. There is a Nortek aquadop, a DMON, and unpumped CTD and a VMT on this glider. The purpose of this mission is to patrol Roseway Basin in efforts to further understand the habitat of whales by measuring their presence, there food and the water properties.

I updated the depth at which the altimeter turns on because we were getting short false inflections. It now turns on at 10 m.

The goto file was set to go to next waypoint after last achieved on 2016-06-07 18:24 UTC.

The goto file was updated to skip wpt 5 since it was already heading for 6.

goto file was updated to head to wpt 9 from current position (S of wpt 6) with the intention of subsequently heading down to wpt 8, thus spreading out transects

bond will be close to wpt 9 within the next two surfacings, goto file was updated to have glider start heading SSE to wpt 8.

Bond has been struggling with false inflections, we have had this issue already and had altered the depth at which the altimeter comes on -> !put u_alt_min_depth to 10, this seemed to have halted the issue for a while, but we have recently been experiencing the same thing. We therefore issued !put u_alt_min_depth 15, to attempt to resolve this issue.

bond will likely surface pretty close to wpt 8 on the next surfacing, so goto_l10.ma was updated to have bond head to wpt 11. We are continuing to modify course so as to best spread out transects altered by currents

updated goto_l10.ma to have bond head for wpt 13, haven't covered as much distance as planned originally and have adjusted remaining mission track accordingly.

bond is struggling against strong ESE currents, it was making no progress toward wpt 13, so goto_l10.ma was updated to have bond try to head to wpt 16, hopefully heading north out of current. Changed initial_wpt to 15

We made some progress North and hopefully out of the currents, so we are going to try wpt 13 again. Changed initial_wpt to 12

We got a bad GPS hit that made it into the surface dialogue on 25-Jun-2017 02:52.

gotol10.ma updated to have glider head to wpt 17, next surfacing will be updated again to head towards Ingomar NS for scheduled recovery (June 27 2017)
jvandermeer @

Created new goto_l10.ma file. Glider will start to head to recovery waypoint east of Ingomar
acomeau @

Updated surfac06.ma so the glider will surface every hour for recovery. Changed when_secs(s) to 3600.
