The salinity series contains short gaps on 25/26 Aug 92,
11/12 Nov 92, and 29/30 Oct 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 and have not
bridged these gaps.
