FORTH LOG Time Series

All MOBY's functions and scheduling of data acquisition by MOS are controlled by the MLML Instrument Controller located in the upper instrument bay. The controller logs all daily functions in a ASCII FORTH LOG which is transmitted with each raw MOBY file. The FORTH LOG contains the MOBY operational parameters. These parameters include temperature and humidity of the controller housing, battery status and voltages, recharging of batteries, time difference between the GPS unit and Instrument Controller's clock, file transfer times and instruments waking up and begin turned off (MOS, TT5, and GPS). The FORTH LOG transmitted with each raw MOBY file is appended to the bottom of the individual MOBY page.
