About 21% of the speeds were below the instrument's threshold
and have been set to zero. The final 116 days of the speed record
contains only zeros. This may be a true reflection of below
threshold currents, or it may indicate a sensor failure. In any
case that portion of the speed record is not useful and we have
removed it.
