CEFAS's comment about speed and direction in this record:

"This is believed to be a reasonably good record although 12% of
speeds are at meter threshold and the quality of tape translation
deteriorates toward the end of the the record. From the end of
January 1994 spurious large speeds had to be removed by linear
interpolation. 

There is also some concern about the directions, for there is
a notable paucity of directions recorded between 105 and 120
degrees. However, there is a significant similarity between the
low-passed series from this meter and that from the meter situated
686 m above it."

We agree that this is a good record.

Move up one level.
