The salinity series contains short gaps on 24 Aug 92,
05 Nov 92, and 04 Nov 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.

All variables have a longer gap in lines 7994 (2300 25 Jan 93)
through 8490 (1500 15 Feb 93).
