CEFAS has expressed doubts about the validity of a portion of the
speed record: "During the period 1430 21 Aug 93 to 1830 10 Sep 93
(lines 4030 - 4514) 68% of speeds are at the meter threshold.
Otherwise this appears to be a good record and if the 20-day period
above is ignored, 6% of recorded speeds are at the meter threshold."
We (OSU) are unsure whether this episode represents a sensor failure
or valid low speeds. Use these data with caution. 

Move up one level.
