CEFAS provides a note of caution:

"The quality of the data deteriorated after 21st August 1993 when
pulse qualityerrors frequently appeared ... On some occasions values
fromthe temperature, speed and direction sensors were clearly incorrect
and these have been replaced by an interpolated value. A total of 269
speeds and 82 directions were amended and users should be aware that
some questionable values may remain in this record. A comparison with
the series from the meter situated 528 m below this one indicated a
marked similarity."

We (OSU) believe this to be, on the whole, a good record. 

Move up one level.
