Surface flux data products (that use relative wind speed in the calculation) are currently not being produced when surface current data from the collocated VELPT are not available. A fix is in progress (Redmine 13111).

Deployment 1: Buoy log files showed that seawater was first detected inside the buoy well on 3/26/2015. Both leak detectors showed increasing presence of water over the period of deployment. Upon recovery of the mooring, no external damage was visible and the buoy did not appear to be floating lower than normal.

Deployment 1: Upon recovery, the bottom of the buoy was heavily biofouled with gooseneck barnacles. The barnacle coverage likely caused imporper sea water flushing at the location of the intakes and sensor faces for the subsurface instruments.

Deployment 2: Wind speed may be biased low - initial comparison with the ship sensors showed wind speeds that were lower than the ship observations by up to 5 m/s, more so at speeds exceeding ~8 kts.

Deployment 2: Conductivity values appear to be erroneous on 12/29/2015. After this time, conductivity gradually became further offset (lower) compared to conductivity recorded by the collocated METBK (GA01SUMO-SBD12-06-METBKA000). By the end of the deployment, values were offset by ~0.01 S m-1. Salinity values exhibit the same behavior and were offset by ~0.1 psu from the salinity recorded by GA01SUMO-SBD12-06-METBKA000 by the end of the deployment.

Suspect data: the magnitude of met_current_speed noticeably changes between deployments 2 and 3. This should be investigated. A similar issue occurred on GI01SUMO METBKs.

These variables are missing global ranges for this instrument: stream metbk_hourly - met_buoyfls, met_buoyflx, met_frshflx, met_heatflx, met_latnflx, met_mommflx, met_rainflx, met_sensflx, met_netsirr_hourly. stream metbk_a_dcl_instrument and metbk_a_dcl_instrument_recovered: met_windavg_mag_corr_east, met_windavg_mag_corr_north, met_heatflx_minute, met_latnflx_minute, met_netlirr_minute, met_sensflx_minute.

metbk_hourly data will not be reviewed because of issues producing the data products have not been resolved - see Redmine tickets 13111, 13113, 13221. Data plots are available in the review images.

met_current_speed, met_relwind_speed, met_wind10m, shortwave_irradiance, and met_netsirr global ranges should be reviewed. See review notes for CP01CNSM-SBD11-06-METBKA000 for more details.

Deployment: 1

There are no metbk_hourly data for this deployment (presumably related to annotation ID 653) - the dataset should be annotated to let users know why this stream isn't available.

Annotation ID 653: seawater was detected inside the buoy well. Data after 3/26/2015 are suspect. Excluding from summary data ranges.

Suspect precipitation data. This should be investigated and annotated.

The asset management deployment depth is -5 for deployments 1-2, but 0 for deployment 3. All other global METBK deployment depths are -5.

The CT sensor periodically flatlines, and sea_surface_temperature data ended prematurely (3/24/2017). Should be investigated and annotated.
