Bad altimeter pings are apparent in many deployments of the coastal gliders. A few example plots are attached - m_water_depth plotted as semi-transparent bathymetry.

Glider optodes typically exhibit a sensor lag of 20-25 seconds. Example attached of 3 consecutive down and up casts for CE05MOAS-GL312-04-DOSTAM000 on 7/8/2014 showing a typical measurement time lag. Profiles should be analyzed for individual time lags and data should be adjusted. OOI doesn't necessarily need to make the adjustment but users should be aware of the issue.

99% of the sci_bsipar_par values for this deployment are outside of global ranges. sci_bsipar_par is the unscaled L0 PAR data product. The global ranges for this parameter are the same as for the scaled L1 PAR data product [0.0, 2500.0]. The global range for sci_bsipar_par should be reviewed.

There are several hours on 5/13/2017 where data are available in the telemetered stream and not the recovered_host stream for every instrument. These data should be available in the recoverred_host dataset: 2017-05-13T04:11:19 to 2017-05-13T09:20:47
