Quality Assessment

Depth given is approximate and the pressures are relative.

Long-term drift has been satisfactorily removed from all data channels.

390 decibars were subtracted from the bottom pressure, and the temperatures were multiplied by 10 to make the best use of the ACCLAIM file format.

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