The salinity series contains short gaps on 22 Aug 92,
14 Feb 93, 22 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.
