Approximately 26% of the speeds in this record were below the
current meter's threshold and have been set to zero. 

There is an odd episode on 31 May 94 in which all parameters
except salinity experience large excursions that are not seen
elsewhere in this record. Nor does anything unusual occur deeper
on the mooring at this time. It is not clear whether these
anomalies are artifacts caused by an instrument failure or
genuine speeds, directions, etc. 

Move up one level.
