Occasional instable profiles in the upper 50m might be an artefact of thruster use on FS Maria S. Merian. Use such data with caution. Original Seabrid file numbering has been changed so that files 186 and 187 have been merged to profile 186 and files 188 and 189 have been merged to profile 187. Profile 186 was missing in the ship log.
