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.

Short deployments (5 and 6) should be annotated

99% of the sci_bsipar_par values for deployments 1 and 2 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.

45% - 69% of parad_m_par and sci_bsipar_par values are outside of global ranges for deployments 4-6. Zooming in shows the majority of those values are negative.

parad_m_par values are orders of magnitude too low for this deployment. sci_bsipar_par values are reasonable, so the scaling factor should be reviewed.
