This record contains an episode of apparently below-threshold
speeds from 0700 08 Jun 92 through 1830 27 Jun 92. This might
be an instrument failure, though there are numerous other
below-threshold speeds in the record. In all, some 13.9% of
the speeds were at or below threshold.

Temperature contains a hiatus in lines 1056 (1030 18 Mar 92)
through 1227 (0000 22 Mar 92). This gap occurs between the
first and second deployments of the mooring; we chose not to
bridge it.
