Sensor pod of the cCSPP released

The sensor pod of the cabled coastal surface-piercing profiler (cCSPP) floating freely in the water column after being released from the deployment cradle on the profiler base. Once powered up, the sensor pod will move up and down in the water column at least 4 times per day, taking samples continuously using the onboard CTD, oxygen, fluorometer, nitrate, AC-S, PAR sensor, spectral irradiance, and 3D water velocity sensors.
