The pressure record contains evidence that the mooring may
have been moved or may have slid to a location approximately
14 meters deeper on 11 Oct 98.  Similar anomalies are present
in the pressure and current records from the other instruments
on this mooring.

Salinity contains a long gap in lines 22 through 202 (1600 2 May 98 through 1600 17 May 98) and ends early at line 605 (0600 20 Jun 98).
