Jim reported he'll ask SMCC will make less drifters than originally planned
in order to spend the time and $ on numbering/lettering the PVC section.
We will still have more than enough drifters to cover the current plan:
4 drifters for each of the 4 transects on each of the four months (w/5
off Isle au Haut).
Jim noted that there are a number of changes that will be made to this
system and that he has given the programmer a list of priority items. Once
she has made some of these changes, he will report back to the group
Patrice tested the system and noted a few problems like not being able
to enter the full 10-digit phone number
one possibility is that we mantain a minimum existence on proceeds from
drifter production where we can put a few hundred dollars per drifter back
into the project in the form of both support and equipment
status of Small Business Initiative Research proposal for realtime probe
Jim got word (after the meeting) that SBIR awards will not be announced
until mid-July which means we may have to write two options into our phase
Jim & Patrice noted the importance of GoMOOS as a partner and
leader in the regional "Ocean observing Systems"
Jim also asked Bonnie to keep an eye out for any possibile collaborations
with UNH Coastal Ocean Observing and Analysis group since she is located
money flow schedule
how do drifter participants get paid?
Patrice noted the $500 per documented transect deployed
how do Bonnie's "temperature transect" participants get paid?
this item was not discussed specifically but Bonnie did mention that she
has some extra ONSET probes that would be available for an inidividual
to attempt a "transect" deployment.
Jim noted that this would be ok as long as the deployment was very well
Before mid-May 2004
