FRI 28-MAR-2008 (088)     -  MOBY Deployed
                           
                            There is still a problem with the LuMID in the UV. LuMid is way to
                            low making the Kls calculated with LuMID too low or too high
                            in the UV. Lutop-Bot Kl still looks good.
                           
                            The delta time in the FORTH LOGs is WAY OFF!!
                           
                             MOBY is "dialing in" daily again!!
THU 17-APR-2008 (108) - Mark noticed the 22 hour integration times are not the same for red and blue spec.
TUE 29-APR-2008 (120) - The MOS pressure sensor changed from ~10 m to ~18 meters. We are not sure what happened.
WED 14-MAY-2008 (135) - E-MAIL FROM MARK ------------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: MOBY site check From: "Mark Yarbrough" Date: Wed, 14 May 2008 15:40:17 -1000 Hi All, Steve was able to get out to the MOBY mooring today (Wed, 5/14). He performed a cleaning, took pictures and checked things out. Everything looked good to Steve. He did say the currents were very strong and the buoy was riding with a larger than normal tilt. The currents were also very strong when Terry was last out there as well, it could be we are in an extended period of strong currents. None of this explains the excessively large depth readings. But we do know the buoy and tether are not wrapped at this time. mark
MON 16-JUN-2008 (168) - E-MAIL FROM MARK ------------------------------------------------------------------- Subject: MOBY Diver cals From: "Mark Yarbrough" Date: Wed, 16 Jun2 2008 11:19:23 -1000 Hi all, I visited the MOBY site on 12 and 13 June 2008 with Steve and Tyler from HRA. We found the buoy to be exceptionally clean and in good condition. On the 12th we took pictures and performed "dirty" cals, 2 Lu sets and 1 Ed set (the second Ed battery was bad). The winds were quite strong on the 13th, in the 20 knot range, even though the forecast was for variable winds, so we were only able to do the cleaning and reinstall the anti-fouling tubes. I arranged with Marco to connect via Internet to the MOBY Linux controller to check disk space and collect some of the saved diagnostic information. Marco had some concern that the Linux system could be filling the disk more rapidly than predicted and wanted to connect to check the system as a precaution. I was at the MOBY site on the 13th, right after his session, to make sure the controller continued to cycle properly after he disconnected or to restart the system if he had a problem. There were no problems, the system functioned properly and the Linux system has plenty of space for the entire deployment. Mark
FRI 14-NOV-2008 (319) - While a NIST (2008_02, Nov 7-21) Mark noticed the LuMid fiber had pistoned into the connectors. This may help explain the UV problem.
