May 28, 2015 - ESP Update

Hi all,
Just checking in to let you know the ESPs are still showing very little
signal on the hab arrays.
The time series plot of estimated Alexandrium fundyense (NA1) data is
available at the following website:
Given the unfavorable weather conditions for operations this week (seas
4-6 ft in the study area) and the lack of a significant bloom at the
mooring sites, we postponed the scheduled ground truth survey on R/V
Tioga. The survey has tentatively been rescheduled for June 9-10 using
the R/V Gulf Challenger working out of Portsmouth, NH.
To save critical resources and stretch the ESP missions just a little
longer, we temporarily aborted the current mission running on ESP-1
(ESPdon) and reprogrammed a new mission that will last until June 19 or
when power runs out, whichever comes first. We plan to do the same for
ESP-2 (dennis) after today's run finishes.
If ESP results change, then we'll let you know,
