The salinity series contains short gaps on 22 Aug 92
and 27 Aug 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. There is a
longer gap in lines 6041 - 8499 (1900 04 Nov 92 -
0500 15 Feb 93), caused by a sensor failure.

Salinity ends early at line 14698 (1200 31 Oct 93).
