Cruise Notes

Project: Science Verification Cruise, Leg I


Cruise Metadata Notes: This is the first in a series of science verification cruises. While every effort was made to have a complete data set, some systems are still coming on line. During the cruise the speedlog *.SPD and knudsen *.KN3260 ascii data collection in the /uderway/raw directory began. This data did not yet make it into the underway/proc files. Processed barometric pressure was calculated using R/V Knorr's sensor/mast height - 14.2m. R/V Neil Armstrong's vaisala sensor height is 18.27m. Accurate barometric pressure will have to be recalculated from the raw data. The date and time on the Kongsberg acquisition computers - EM122, EM710 and EK-80 - were not synced to the ship's time server. Notes for applicable discrepancy of the file dates are included in each directory. This was fixed on 9 March.
