OOIFB – Action Items 2018

Action: OOIFB-2018-1 (completed) – Review and provide input to Engineering Change Request from Dennis McGillicuddy and colleagues regarding Pioneer.

  • OOIFB reviewed application, heard input from WHOI engineers, and discussed process.

Action Taken

  • 3/9/2018 The OOIFB held a conference call on March 7, 2018 to discuss the OOI Engineering Change Request (ECR) 1300-00583: Pioneer AUV Sampling Modification.  We feel that this type of request is exactly what should be happening as researchers learn about the capabilities of OOI. We heard from OOI personnel at WHOI who concurred that there would be minimal, to no impact on the OOI sampling schedules.  OOIFB input to your request is that the ECR proposing AUV sampling changes to support an NSF-funded proposal by Dennis McGillicuddy and colleagues be approved.
