This record contains gaps in which some of the parameters are
absent. (1) Pressure is absent from 1100 26 Feb 89 through 0700
29 Mar 79, and again from 0800 31 Jul 89 through the end of the
record. (2) Temperature ends early at 1900 28 Jul 89. (3) Salinity
ends at 1500 27 Jun 89. (4) Direction ends early at 1600 26 Oct
89. 

There are several extended episodes of zero speed, beginning
in July 89, during which direction sticks at 351 degrees. This
constant value for direction appears to be an artifact of the
data processing. The speed zeros probably represent below-threshold
speeds.
