Approximately 5% of the speeds in this record were below the
current meter's threshold and have been set to zero. Many other
below-threshold speeds have been interpolated to values between
zero and the threshold. 

Three of the time series in this record end early: temperature
at line 3914, pressure at line 4812, and salinity at line 3480.

The salinity series contains two unusual changes of register
in which salinity increases by about 0.3 psu near the end of
the record. Are these real, or are they instrument errors?
