Float diagnostics primarily for the monitoring of float health.|
Buoyancy pump monitoring information as float ascends and
The first value is usually around 100dbar and indicates the pumping done
to target the park depth. Seek periods may follow. From profile pressure
to the surface, the float attempts to maintain a constant rate.
Position fixes returned by the float. First GPS fix occurs
surfacing. Second GPS fix occurs just before leaving the surface.
An estimate of the Iridium Position is also displayed.
NOTE: the 2nd GPS fix is transmitted in the subsequent cycle,
thus the most recent cycle will not have reported both positions.
|Display of profile and trajectory information:|
Pressure-Time pairs taken periodically as the float measures its
(from Park to max pressure, to surface) In the left panel, the data pairs are
converted to vertical speed. Red dots are from the latest cycle.
Pressure-Time pairs taken periodically as the float descends
the surface to its park pressure. A large temporal gap between the last
few data points indiate a SEEK period. In the left panel the data pairs
are converted to vertical speed. Red dots are from the latest cycle.
Often changed configuration parameters are reported by the float
Examples include parking and profile pressure, amongst others.
