This instrument's clock was running 66 minutes slow at recovery,
which may mean that one sample is missing (the sampling interval
is one hour). 

Very few direction measurements were recorded between 40 and 180
degrees. CEFAS believes that this may have been due either to the
steep angle of the earth's magnetic field at the mooring site, or
an incorrectly balanced (i.e., tilted) instrument. If the latter
is true speeds may have been underestimated. In any case, we have
not included direction, u and v here since they obviously are
incorrect.
