Approximately 17% of the speeds measured by this instrument were
at or below the current meter's threshhold, which is 1.8 cm/sec.
In this file these (unknown) speeds have been set to 1.8 cm/sec.

This file is from a group of records whose speeds are noisier
than usual. These records (hourly measurements from WHOI moorings
623 through 632) are from the same general area and the same
time span, and appear to be from a single experiment. The noisy
speeds may be due to a persistant instrument malfunction. While
this is not necessarily the case, we suggest that you keep this
possibility in mind if you use the data.
