Quality Assessment

Datum of the pressure measurements is not maintained from one deployment to the next. Depths given are approximate and pressures are relative.

Long-term drift has been removed from the data.

Nov 1992 - Nov 1993

Pressure channel 1 appears to be best however all channels are 'noisy'.

Nov 1993 - Nov 1994

Pressure channels 1 or 2 appear better than pressure channel 3.
