The salinity series contains short gaps on 04 Nov 92,
27 Aug 93, and 31 Oct 93. The gaps occur where salinity
shows an unrealistically large increase or decrease between
succesive deployments of the mooring. We think this may be
due to uncalibrated or drifting sensors. We have not
bridged these gaps.
