Temperature and conductivity contain a gap in lines 874 through 884
(1800 18 Oct 83 - 0400 19 Oct 83). Both series show a shift of register:
temperature about half a degree downward and conductivity about 0.05 mmho/cm
upward. Speed and direction also contained a gap in the file provided by
CSIRO, but we have replaced the speed and direction gaps with predictive
interpolations in u and v. It appears likely that the mooring moved during
this episode, causing the instrument to record garbage.

Move up one level.
