Communications with instruments on the NSIF for CE02SHSM are offline. Monitoring current draws to the NSIF shows a pattern of increased and expected current draws every 15 minutes, corresponding to the instrument sampling schedules. This suggests that the DCLs and attached instruments are still operating, but communications to the system are offline, reason unknown.

Affected systems are:

CPM2

DCL26

ADCPT
VELPT
PHSEN
uCSPP (acoustic modem communications)
NUTNR
SPKIR
DCL27

OPTAA
FLORT
DOSTA
CTDBP
Will continue to monitor current draws on RDA6.

NSIF communicated starting again early on the 14th. Logs from NSIF systems indicate that the systems and instruments are still working, pointing to a communications issue between the NSIF and the surface buoy telemetry system.

VELPT on CE02SHSM NSIF tilts too much during storms

NSIF tilted over to ~30 degrees according to its VELPT. According to VELPT manufacturer, data are suspect when this instrument is tilted more than 20 degrees. A quality flag should be set when this happens. Pressure sensor indicates the NSIF shallowed during this time. Our assumption is that the mooring is stretched taut in one direction during storms. One should also check MOPAK and VELPT-buoy data to see if the buoy tilts excessively during these times as well.

According to the manufacturer, data are suspect when the instrument is tilted more than 20 degrees (measured by pitch and roll).
