AQS - Exceptional Data Types
0 No data has been flagged
1The summary excludes all flagged data
2 The summary does not exclude any data
5 The summary excludes regionally concurred flagged data
AQS computes summaries (daily, quarterly, and annual) that either include or exclude the flagged data and labels each summary with an “Exceptional Data Type”
Why do we bring this up here? You must be aware of these different summaries when you do your retrievals!
