Quality Assessment

Period Comments
Nov 1988 - Nov 1989 Long-term drift has been satisfactorily removed from all pressure channels. A correction has been made for what appears to tbe the gauge slipping to a greater depth after Jan 30.
Marked data:
PRESRL01 - (30)Jan 30,(251)Sep 08
PRESRL02 - (28-29)Jan 28-29,(30)Jan 30
PRESRL03 - (28-29)Jan 28-29,(30)Jan 30
Nov 1989 - Nov 1990 Long-term drift has been satisfactorily removed from all pressure channels. PRESRL01 fails Aug 04 1990, probably due to battery failure.
