Quality Hourly data from proximal locations are graphed and compared to check that they
follow the same general trend. Outliers ("spikes" up or down) are identified
and eliminated. Monthly manual readings taken at the same location are compared
against the hourly readings to identify drift from calibration. Recorders
consistently drifting > 0.1' are replaced as soon as practical. Data from these
drifting recorders are either eliminated or adjusted - adjustment occurs only
if a consistent trend of drift can be identified.
Access Constraints Requests for data should be directed to the DWP Research Coordinator. Data will
be provided in electronic format.
Use Constraints Any reports or publications presenting or referring to these datasets must be
