Deployment 1: Due to delays on deck during deployment, the profiler's first dive began before the anchor was dropped. Once the dive starts, the winch roller engages and the profiler begins its descent, which in this case meant winching back toward the boat/anchor. This may have damaged the winch mechanism or started the profiler into a non-standard deployment mode. The upper profiler (WFP02) indicated an error condition upon recovery, and a large number of profiles failed to log any CTD data. The lower profiler's battery voltage dropped rapidly near profile 300, which appears to have slowed down the profiling speed and increased the profile duration.

Deployment 3: The lower profiler was lost during the mooring recovery attempt. Recovered data from the main controller were processed, rather than from the profiler (as is customary).
