The pressure record contains numerous short episodes where pressure
appears to have exceeded the sensor's maximum (i.e., where pressure
went offscale at the upper end of the sensor's range). The pressure
maxima coincide with speed maxima. In addition the pressure record
is increasingly noisy after mid-January 2004. This appears to be a
sensor error.
