This mooring experienced a sudden decrease in depth of about
14 meters on 11 Sep 92. The cause (the mooring may have been
dragged, or a tangle in the line may have come free) is not
clear from the recorded data. 

A sudden decrease in speed on 31 Dec 92 may be due to a temporary
failure of the speed sensor's rotorcounter.
