The salinity series contains short gaps on 26/27/28 Aug 92,
11 Nov 92, 18 Feb 93, and 20/21/22 Aug 93. The gaps occur
where salinity shows unrealistically large changes between
succesive deployments of the mooring. We think this may be
due to uncalibrated or drifting sensors, and have not bridged
these three gaps.

For similar reasons pressure contains gaps on 11 Nov 92,
18 Feb 93, and 20/21/22 Aug 93.
