The temperature series contains a gap in lines 1637 - 3008
(1830 12 May 93 - 2130 8 Jul 93). 

With regard to speed and direction, we include here a note of
caution from CEFAS:

This record is suspect and should be used with caution because

(a) Very few (approximately 2% of the total) directions were
    recorded between 80 and 160 degrees. The compass may have
    been influenced by the angle of the earth's magnetic field,
    or the meter may not have been horizontal, or the compass
    may have been faulty. 

(b) The tape translation after 83 days - by 11 May - becomes
    poor (the meter reference number changes and pulse length
    errors occur); and although the problem appears to clear
    by day 146 - 13 July - it subsequently returns when the
    record ends, on 21 August 1993.

As a result of the second problem, we (OSU) have removed speed and
direction in lines 1619 - 3106 (0030 11 May 93 - 2330 12 Jul 93).
