As annotation ID 341 notes: conductivity, salinity, and density values drop substantially in the last few months of the deployment. Excluding from final statistics.

In Jan - Feb 2016, the signal of a colder, fresher water mass appears to be captured by several CTDs on GA03FLMA and GA03FLMB. Salinity and density drop suddenly for several days. This appears to be a real event as the phenomenon is captured by multiple instruments located on two moorings, but should be further investigated. Density and salinity drop suddenly on the following CTDs:
GA03FLMA-RIM01-02-CTDMOG044
GA03FLMA-RIM01-02-CTDMOG045
GA03FLMA-RIM01-02-CTDMOG046

Deployment 1: Conductivity values are variable and drop substantially in the last few months of the deployment. Similar activity is not observed on other CTDs deployed on this mooring. Density and salinity values are also suspect.

Deployment 2: Mooring was blown down by ~500m. Corresponds to the presence of eddies in the region based on altimetry imagery.
