24th deployment, near Coast Guard buoy.
Sailboat race starting at buoy interfered with
profiling and limited to 80 ft. 03/24/2019.

Article on CDOC mooring deployment
25th deployment via drifting boat at
Avalon. Cold and wet day. EXO2
deployed with redundant pH and
temp/conductivity sensors.
Conductivity was not calibrated
correctly for both sensors and all  
quantities derived from conductivity
are incorrect.

26th deployment, from kayak at Coast
Guard Buoy, Avalon, using EXO1. Data
were being collected simultaneously by
EXO2 at Two Harbors. Much boat traffic
for Labor day weekend.
