Pressure records from the other two current meters on this mooring
show that the mooring slipped downslope about a day after it was
deployed. The increase in depth was about 35 meters. Judging from
those pressure records, this instrument may have been 100 to 150
meters deeper than its given depth of 1000 meters.
