ru15 analysis

This is the initial analysis of the data taken collected by ru15 on its trip to Halifax.

Plot of Ballast Pump as a function of time

This is a plot of ballast pump (cubic centimeters) as a function of time. Note that the pump is measuring past it's specified position of + 230 cc. This could be electrical noise in the system while the glider is at the surface. Or could the ballast pump be actually at those positions?

This is a plot of m_battery as a function of time. You can see the voltage increase when we get into the gulf stream.

This a plot of m_depth versus time. The glider took some time heading out over the shelf in the beginning and then was in 100+ meters for the rest of the deployment.

This a plot of temperature measured by the ctd for the deployment. Most of the time in water < 10 deg C.

This a plot of temperature measured by the sensor inside the glider. The spike at the end is when the glider was sitting at the surface waiting to get picked up by the Halifax crew.

This is a plot of sci_water_temp in blue and m_vehicle_temp in red. The vehicle is a little warmer than the surrounding water.

This is a histogram of the pitch angle on climbs. The glider was at the optimal pitch angle the majority of the time.

This is a histogram of the pitch angle on dives. The glider was at the optimal pitch angle the majority of the time.
