UpTempO 2011 #8 Amundsen - Deceased


Made by MetOcean Data Systems
Iridium ID # (IMEI = International Mobile Equipment Identity): 300234010957610

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 August 23, 2011 by David Babb (University of Manitoba) in open water from the Canadian Coast Guard Icebreaker Amundsen during their ArcticNet cruise.

Initial status: Unfortunately, all ocean thermistor data from this buoy were unrealiable from the start; we suspect water leakage of some kind. Position and atmospheric and ocean pressure data were good.

THANKS TO: David Barber, chief scientist for this cruise, for allowing us to take time to deploy our buoy, and to David Babb and the ship’s crew for deploying the instrument.

SUMMARY

The plot below shows the path of UpTempO 2011 #8 Amundsen 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.
