All series have long gaps that lie between successive
deployments of the mooring, or where sensors failed.

Salinity contains a gap in lines 9024 (1100 01 Apr 1998)
through 14939 (2200 03 Dec 1998).

u, v, and temperature contain a gap in lines 13588
(1500 08 Oct 1998) though 14939 (2200 03 Dec 1998).

The first portion of the file (through line 13587) was
recorded by a General Oceanics MKII current meter. The
second portion (after line 14939) appears to have been
recorded by an S4, though this is not certain.
