Speed and direction end early in this record, on 4 Jun 91.
Salinity ends early, on 24 Aug 91. Temperature ends on 31 Oct 92.
The longest series, pressure, continues until 19 Dec 91. 

The pressure record shows a sudden increase of about 110 db
on 29 Jun 91. The pressure then decreases and settles at a value
approximately 25 db greater than the previous average. A similar
depth excursion is evident in the pressure record from the
instrument below this one on the mooring, at 1010 meters.
The cause is unknown; the mooring may have been dragged and
then released in slightly deeper water.
