Deployment 3: Due to a clock rollover issue, all WFPs have ceased sampling on 1/1/2020. No WFP data are being collected after this date. A resolution is being researched by the vendor.

Comparison with the shipboard CTD cast was done for D0001 and R0001. For D0001, Chl-a recorded by the profiler was generally comparable to the CTD cast, with the exception of the chl-a maximum (~20 - 40 dbar) where the profiler recorded higher chl-a values. For R0001 the chl-a recorded from the profiler was higher. Further analysis using the shipboard bottle data should be conducted. This is outside the scope of this project.

pressure record in the data file are all NaNs. lgarzio edit: The pressure coordinate (pressure_depth) is an array of all fill values. This variable should contain valid pressure data. There is another variable in the files called in_ctd_pressure that contains what appears to be valid pressure data. This is the case for every FLORTK on every WFP. https://opendap.oceanobservatories.org/thredds/dodsC/ooi/lgarzio@marine.rutgers.edu/20181218T135235-CP01CNPM-WFP01-04-FLORTK000-recovered_wfp-flort_sample/deployment0001_CP01CNPM-WFP01-04-FLORTK000-recovered_wfp-flort_sample_20171106T190203-20180412T120904.nc.ascii?pressure_depth[0:1:1000],int_ctd_pressure[0:1:1000]
