The pressure sensor shows considerable drift over the course
of the experiment. Nor is it in agreement with the stated depth
of the current meter. (But that is true of most of the pressure
records from the Vents arrays. CMDAC does not know how the stated
depths were arrived at, or whether they are preferable to the
depths one obtains from the pressure records. It may, for example,
be that the pressure calibrations were not accurate.)
