SPECIAL_FEATURES This float has transmitted auxiliary CTD profile data as part of its ice-algorithm firmware. This data is of limited depth range and is considered technical data. As such it is being placed in the auxiliary directory. Other limited profile data may also be included. Buoyancy pumping diagnostics are being placed in the auxiliary directory.
