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 several segments with consecutive down and up casts for CP05MOAS-GL335-04-DOSTAM000 on 10/26/2015 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.

The majority (75-90%) of the seawater velocity data for each deployment are NaNs or outside of global ranges. See the science variable output for details:

Deployment: 4

Glider looks like it drifted at the end of the deployment - this should be annotated

Deployment 1: DVL experienced a failure on 2014-05-07 and the instrument's internal timestamp was set back to 2004-01-01. The last raw data file with a valid timestamp was NE07140.PD0. The root cause is currently unknown.
