Cleaning and calibration
On December 3rd, 2013 Park Ranger Jose Sanchez and Marlon Hibbert visited the station to perform needed calibration and cleaning. It was the second visit since the team from AOML visited in early August.
For the months of October and November no visits were accomplished due to either the weather or other unavoidable delays.
That said , the station appeared in fair condition. Due to the weather, we had the opportunity to clean the topside of the pylon, normally it is near impossible to work at the top due to surge. The screens on the lower CTD were also changed.
The calibration begun @ approximately 1000 hrs and terminated @ 1400hrs.
Our next trip is planned for a few weeks time, before years end and contingent on weather conditions.
