Due to reduced power on the mooring (limited recharging of the batteries with light winds and sea lions blocking the solar panels), we have had to reduce the operating schedule of the 7 meter platform. Normally we run the system continuously, but have reduced that schedule to hourly.

During a large storm event on 2020-01-11, power from the wind turbines was lost. This is the primary means of recharging the battery system on the mooring. With the loss of recharging power, we have had to implement a conservative power model. These systems and instruments have been disabled for the foreseeable future, and no further data will collected from them.
