Speed and direction begin about 3 days later than temperature
and pressure in this file. The first good speed and direction
are at line 39 (0600 19 Mar 93). 

Pressure values at the beginning of the record correspond to
a depth of about 3280 m, but drift to significantly shallower
values later in the record. This appears to be due to sensor
drift, and these pressures should not be used uncritically.
