About 21.3% of the speeds were at or below the instrument's stall
speed, which is 0.75 cm/sec. These speeds have been recorded as 0.75
cm/sec.

This instrument did not measure pressure. U of W notes that
"Pressures from other instruments on the line suggest that the
unperturbed instrument depth was about 243m, giving a pressure
of about 245.78 dbar ... that pressure was used in salinity
calculation, with no pressure correction for pull-down.  This
RCM-derived salinity appears slightly low compared with nearby
SBE-16s above and below."
