UpTempO 2011 #10 Laurier - Deceased


Made by MetOcean Data Systems
Iridium ID # (IMEI = International Mobile Equipment Identity): 300234010853910

ocean temperature at nominal depths (m): 2.5, 5.0, 7.5, 10, 15, 20, 25, 30, 35, 40, 50, 60
ocean pressure depth: 20m, 60m

This is a “standard” buoy with the deepest thermistor at 60 m nominal depth. It was deployed on September 30, 2011 by Humfrey Melling (Institute of Ocean Sciences, BC, Canada) in open water from the Canadian Coast Guard Icebreaker Sir Wilfred Laurier.

Initial status: All systems working, except the 60 m thermistor seems bad.

THANKS TO: Humfrey Melling, chief scientist for this cruise, for taking the time to deploy our buoy, and for helping us with earlier versions that didn't work so well over the past couple of years.

SUMMARY

The plot below shows the path of UpTempO 2011 #10 Laurier colored by month. The flag marks the buoy's last known location. Black contours show two isobaths: 28 m ("short buoy" max depth: e.g., 2011 APLIS buoy) and 60 m ("standard buoy" max depth).

TEMPERATURE TIME SERIES

The temperature time series for each thermistor is shown below, plotted against day of the year. Shading on the plot delineates months.

OCEAN PRESSURE AND SEA LEVEL PRESSURE

This plot shows the ocean pressure(s) from the barometers placed at nominal depths (blue), and sea level pressure in red.


BATTERY VOLTAGE/SUBMERGENCE PERCENT



The battery voltage time series for this buoy is shown in red below. Also shown (in gray) are the battery voltage time series' for all buoys to date.

Derived Quantities


VELOCITY TIME SERIES

One to three hourly velocity is on the left axis.Distance between the buoy's start point and end point each day is shown in red on the right axis.Note that the total displacement of the buoy each day (red) is generally less than what one would calculate from the hourly velocities.
