Pressure inceases by about 2 db during the first several hours.
Some other instruments on this mooring show a similar increase.
This may indicate that the mooring slid deeper, or that the pressure
sensors became acclimated slowly.

About 18.6% of the speeds were at or below the instrument's stall
speed, which is 0.75 cm/sec (and have been recorded as 0.75 cm/sec).
