Two deployments were made in 1996 at this site. The first deployment was between Apr 07, 1996 and Apr 17, 1996. The second deployment was between Oct 29, 1996 and Dec 19, 1996. (Dates reflect dates of data not deployment time)


1Light transmission at 10 meters from the first deployment 1n 1996
 is reported as volts.
Sampling rates vary from instrument to instrument and depth to depth.

1. The nominal position of the mooring is the designed deployment site
   and actual deployments varied by about 0.5 nm around this position.
2. Sensor depths are nominal designed depths.  In water sensors vary
   around this designed depth by about 1 m, variation larger at greater
   distance below buoy.
3. Temperatures are listed in the IPTS68 standard, rather than IPT90.
4. Salinity conversion from conductivity was done with PSS78
5. Sensor normalization was done with pre-cruise calibrations, and checked
   with post-cruise calibrations.
6. Only minor editing has been done to remove spikes from records.
7. No corrections have been made to fluorometer and transmissometer data
   to remove biological fouling induced drift.
8. No corrections have been made to salinity for drifts due to biological
