The pressure coordinate 'pressure_depth' is all fill values for deployments 1-3. This variable should contain valid pressure data.

The sudden and sustained high variability in optical_backscatter seems suspect and should be investigated. Excluding from final statistics.

seawater_scattering_coefficient and optical backscatter data arrays contain a high percentage of fill values (71%).

There are 16 gaps in the data totaling 168 days of missing data (from 2017-06-21 to 2018-01-10). This should be investigated and the data should be filled in (if available) or annotated to explain why these data are missing.

Deployment 1: Buoy log files showed that seawater was first detected inside the buoy well on 3/26/2015. Both leak detectors showed increasing presence of water over the period of deployment. Upon recovery of the mooring, no external damage was visible and the buoy did not appear to be floating lower than normal.
