The pressure sensor drifted toward higher values during the experiment.
CEFAS's comment: "The pressure sensor at the start of the series records
3242 dbar, which approximates to 3190 m. This compares to an expected
depth of 3200 m ... and the difference of 10 m is well within the tolerance
of sensor accuracy of 60 dbar (1% of range). The recorded values increase
during the deployment, from 3242 to 3302 dbar with a modal value of 3254
dbar, but this is also within the sensor tolerance."
