Temperature and salinity contain a 10-hour gap on 12 Nov 92.
This gap lies between successive deployments of the mooring.
Both salilnity and temperature are significantly higher after
the redeployment. The jump may be real, since both variables
contain many large increases and decreases, or it may be due
to a calibration or sensor drift problem. In any case we have
not joined the two series across the gap.
