Subject: Problems during upcast of CTD 002
When: 2015-05-18 16:49:20 UTC

- entered into Elog/Everlog as 2015-05-18 16:49:20
Log: in2015_v02
Equipment: CTD

CTD - Seabird 911 with 24 Bottle Rosette [view]
Station/Location: EAC off Brisbane
Position: Latitude: -27.1628 Longitude: 155.15413

- entered into Elog as 27 09.768 S, 155 09.248 E
Action: incident

During the upcast, the CTD wire spooling degraded at one end, requiring frequent reversals and spooling out in attempts to wind in flat lays. Thus the cast took a very long time - 6 hours. The wire lays are still not good.

During recovery the CTD appears to have hit the side of the ship. Bottle 7s handle seems to have made contact and that Niskin is broken. Bottle 24 did not close.
