Quality Assessment

All data have been tidally analysed and constants and residuals checked. Records have been visually inspected for spikes, timing and datum shifts. There are no apparent datum shifts.

In most cases, missing and bad data reported below, are isolated spikes/missing data, rather than complete days.
