There is a 19 hour gap in temperature beginning at line 20788
(0600 04 May 93). This occurs during the interval between two
successive deployments of the mooring. We have joined u and v
across this gap but not temperature, because the temperatures
following the gap seem too high to match those prior to the
gap. There may be a calibration or depth problem here.

The pressure series does not begin until the final deployment,
at line 20826 (0100 05 May 93).
