Experiment name:        OMEX
Principal Investigator: unavailable
Affiliation:            Plymouth Marine Lab
Mooring name:           GS154

Seafloor depth:         996  meters
Times:                  2000 22 Jan 1994 to 0800 08 Jun 1995

Speed is equal to exactly 1 cm/sec (with a few brief
exceptions) in lines 10020 though 10381 (0700 16 Mar 1995
through 0800 31 Mar 1995). Directions are present and
realistic during this episode. We do not know what type
of current meter was used, but think this may indicate a
temporary failure of the speed sensor.
