Datum of the pressure measurements is not maintained from one deployment to the next (see reference), depths given are approximate and pressures are relative. (Reference: Vassie et al., Journal of Geophysical Research, 99(C1), 937-949).
Mean and Long-term drift has been removed from the data for the deployments 1986-1988, however no attempt has been made to remove possible drift for deployments 1989-1994.
