The nominal speed threshhold of this meter is 1.5 cm/sec, and a common practice is to set below-threshhold speeds either to the threshhold value or to half the threshhold. In this case, however, below-threshhold speeds were set to zero by the originating PI, as were concurrent directions. In processing historical data we normally reset below- threshhold Aanderaa speeds to half the threshhold, but have not done so in this case because the direction information has been lost.
