Salinity begins late, at line 4082 (0200 30 Aug 92), and
contains a gap in lines 12735 (1500 25 Aug 93) through
12744 (0000 26 Aug 93). The gap occurs where salinity
shows an unrealistically large increase between succesive
deployments of the mooring. We think this may be due to
uncalibrated or drifting sensors.
