U and v end early at line 809 (0100 18 aug 94). Temperature and
conductivity are increasingly noisy toward the end of the record
and may not be worth much after mid-January 1995.

We wonder about the times in this file. Its given start time is
0900 15 July 1994, whereas the start times of the other three
instruments on the mooring are two weeks later, in 02 August 1994.
One expects all of the instruments on a mooring to have nearly the
same start time! We are inclined to believe that a start time
during 02 August 1994 is correct, but have archived the current
record as we received it.

Move up one level.
