The salinity series contains short gaps on 04/05 Feb 93,
20/21 Aug 93, and 29/30 Oct 93. The gaps occur where salinity
shows unrealistically large increases between succesive
deployments of the mooring. We think this may be due to
uncalibrated or drifting sensors, and have not bridged these
three gaps.
