2017-06-28 00:50ALLALL deployed by the Warren
2017-06-28 01:00sbe16dissolved_oxygen50Dissolved oxgyen sensor at 50m failed (voltage reading of zero volts).
2017-06-28 01:00metwind_speed,wind_gust-4Backup wind speeds too high at minutes 50 and 00. During the rest of the hour, the backup wind speeds compare well to those measured by the primary wind sensor.
2017-06-28 01:00metvisibility-3Visibility readings flagged as invalid (intermittent periods when values seem to be tracking buoy battery).
2017-06-28 01:00aanderaapercent_oxygen_saturation2Optode reading too low/erratic.
2017-07-04 17:00metwind_speed,wind_gust-4New program loaded into control box remotely; valid backup wind data being received after GPS sampling time was shifted.
2017-07-07 17:00sbe16ALL50SBE16+ inadvertently taken out of sampling mode
2017-07-10 22:00sbe16ALL50SBE16+ sampling resumed after instrument talk-through to restart sampling.
2017-07-17 16:45sunaALL20Last data received from 20m SUNA nitrate sensor. Talkthrough to instrument indicates instrument is in adaptive mode sampling due to reduction in light (possible biological fouling).
2017-07-23 08:00sunaALL20Data transmissions from 20m SUNA nitrate sensor have resumed
2017-07-26 23:00diagnosticsgps_lat,gps_lon-3Last valid data received from primary GPS; backup Goes GPS still working properly.
2017-08-10 18:00sunaALL20Data transmissions from 20m SUNA nitrate sensor have stopped once again.


Notes: Sensors highlighted in red indicate problems with this sensor during deployment. Depth is measured relative to the ocean surface with positive depths indicating depths below the ocean surface. Negative depths are heights above the surface. In the case of doppler current measurements, the depth indicates depth of first measurement:delta-depth:depth of last measurement. For instance, 10:4:106 represents currents measured every 4 meters from 10 meters down to 106 meters (28 depths in all).
