As of April 2013, this version of the documentation is no longer maintained; however, it is consistent with the last (now retired) version of CODAS processing that used Matlab. We no longer update or fix the Matlab processing code, but we will maintain the Matlab code that reads CODAS Matlab output. Although the notes refer to both Python and Matlab processing, none of the code here will be maintained. This (now retired) documentation and code will remain available for awhile longer.
Python processing code is actively maintained and developed, and CODAS Python processing is documented here.
If for some reason the figures quit updating, check the panels and make sure everything is green and active. If they are, DON’T ADJUST ANYTHING: the raw data are being logged, but the processing software hit a glitch for some reason. The ADCP Operator may start data acquisition again under a new cruise name (eg. adding a letter to the cruise name) in an attempt to re-initialize the processing, but if this still does not revive the figures after several hours, email us and we will try to help.
