The pressure record contains some excursions to much greater
depths during the first month that are not correlated with speed
or temperature changes. They appear to represent sensor errors
rather than blowover. 

Approximately 51% of this record's speeds have been set to zero.
These probably are below-threshhold speeds in the raw data. A
further 6% of the speeds are less than 1.5 cm/sec and appear to
represent interpolations.
