The data can be subject to errors and inaccuracies (such as e.g., measurement instabilities, thermistor drift, physical disturbances) that have only partly been filtered out. We strongly suggest to perform data quality checks when using the data and to contact PERMOS (info@permos.ch) as well as the principal investigator and/or the responsible institution.
