A small percentage of seawater velocities are outside of global ranges. For eastward_turbulent_velocity there are periodic readings of >12 m/s, northward_turbulent_velocity periodic readings of 7 m/s, and upward_turbulent_velocity periodic readings of 10 m/s.

Seawater temperature measured by the VEL3D at the end of deployment 1 is substantially lower than the seawater temperature at the beginning of deployment 2

On Wednesday Aug 22 2018, an automatic protective shutdown of primary power to the OOI Cabled Array occurred during installation of a new chiller system. Power was restored on Aug 24. Due to loss of power to the Cabled Array marine infrastructure, data were not collected by the instruments.
