This record's speed, u, and v series end at line 1438 (0000 03 Nov 90).
Direction ends early at line 8057 (1900 05 Aug 91). Of the approximately
two months of speed that are present, about 36.4% were below the sensor's
threshold (1.6 cm/sec). We note that in the record that we received the
speed series was present for the entire record, but all of the speeds
beyond line 1438 were zero, which means either that the speed sensor had
failed at that point or those speeds too were below the sensor's threshold.
We have elected to delete the speeds beyond line 1438 but have kept all
zero speeds prior to that line.

Move up one level.
