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. CMDAC agrees that this is a good record.
