The salinity series contains short gaps on 05/06 Nov 92
and 15 Feb 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.

Salinity ends early at line 10384 (2000 31 Oct 93).
