Quality Assessment

Depth given is approximate, pressures are relative. Long-term drift has been satisfactorily removed from all data channels. 2830 decibars were subtracted from the bottom pressure, and the temperature has been multiplied by 10 to make the best use of the ACCLAIM file format.

A tidal analysis residual generated by POL has also been included.
