The pressure record shows that this mooring slipped downslope
about a day after it was deployed. The increase in depth was about
35 meters. The pressure record from the deepest instrument on the
mooring also shows that the mooring moved. Both pressure records
indicate that the instruments were significantly deeper than their
nominal depths.
