Temperature and conductivity have a gap in lines 877 through 885
(1900 18 Oct 83 - 0300 19 Oct 83). Both show a change of register
during the gap. Temperature decreases by about 1.3 degrees and
conductivity by about 0.09 mmho/cm. u and v appear to contain
interpolations at the same time. The two other instruments on the
mooring also recorded disturbances that coincide in time with these.
It is likely that the mooring moved over a period of several hours.
