Surface flux data products (that use relative wind speed in the calculation) are currently not being produced when surface current data from the collocated VELPT are not available. A fix is in progress.

Deployment 1: Initial comparison with the ship met data revealed no correlation with the LWR (longwave radiation) sensor.

Deployment 1: Buoy log files showed that seawater was first detected inside the buoy well on 3/26/2015. Both leak detectors showed increasing presence of water over the period of deployment. Upon recovery of the mooring, no external damage was visible and the buoy did not appear to be floating lower than normal.

Deployment 1: Upon recovery, the bottom of the buoy was heavily biofouled with gooseneck barnacles. The barnacle coverage likely caused imporper sea water flushing at the location of the intakes and sensor faces for the subsurface instruments.

Deployment 2: Wind speed may be biased low - initial comparison with the ship sensors showed wind speeds that were lower than the ship observations by up to 5 m/s, more so at speeds exceeding ~8 kts.
