Requirements and list description
and provider for "other" systems.
*** Tentatively planning 11 Sentry dives beyond the 3 already scheduled. Will be adding an ADV, 3-axis acclerometer, and another CTD to Sentry.
*** Will require Lowered ADCP gear from the WHOI SSSG equipment pool. SSSGs will need to install and help operate but Kinsey will handle data processing.
