DateBuffer NameData TypeDepthComments
2018-07-08 16:15ALLALL deployed (slack mooring) by R/V Connecticut
2018-08-19 19:50metbarometric_pressure-3Barometric pressure sensor reading near zero volts for long periods of time (over 24 hours) before returning to valid readings.
2018-10-26 01:00sbe37ALL20Data from all subsurface SBE37 IMs becoming intermittent.
2018-12-09 16:09sbe37ALL1Last valid data received from 1m SBESM.
2018-12-11 22:00ALLALL0Buoy broke free from its anchor - presently adrift.
2019-09-21 14:00ALLALL Recovered by Portugese Naval vessel off Ponta Delgado (Azores). Wire rope had been parted below 50m IM (bottom 3 IMs were lost).


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).
