Speeds were at or below the meter's threshhold during a 10-day
period extending from 26 May 82 to 5 Jun 82. An unbroken run of
below-threshhold speeds this long at a depth of 1619 meters is
unusual, and may indicate a sensor failure. Overall, approximately
16% of the speeds were at or below threshhold. Use these data
with caution.
