The depth of this instrument appears to have increased by about
7 meters after 6 Jan 05. The same increase can be seen in records
from other instruments on this mooring that carried pressure sensors.
There are also indications that the depth decreased by a few meters
during the initial several days; but this could be due to line
stretch.
