Process_Step:
Process_Description:
Data were sampled and stored within the AUV's internal memory. Post- mission, the AUV was retrieved and all binary data downloaded. Data were translated into ASCII format. Missions are grouped into specific tracks which may have fallen over a change in the day of the year. The GGA sentence was used to extract latitudes, longitudes, and all other data. When the AUV was below the surface of the water, it could not receive a signal from the satellites. Therefore, GPS readings taken at the beginning and end of each mission are the only accurate measurements. Sample configuration and log files can be found within the Day/bin directory. Please peruse the README.txt for more information on configuration and log files.
