   Quality checks performed at NSIDC were limited to checking dates for validity 
   (for instance, there can not be more than 31 days in a month). If a date 
   failed a test, the value was changed to 'missing' (99), and the original data 
   were printed to an error file named err.nn, where nn is the station number.

Group: Summary

   This data set consists of river ice thickness measurements, and beginning and 
   ending dates for river freeze-up events from fifty stations in northern 
   Russia. The data set includes values from 1917 through 1992, however the 
   record length varies for each station. The longest station record covers the 
   period 1917 through 1988 (the station table shows the beginning and end years 
   for measurements at each station). Data were obtained through the U.S.-Russia 
   Working Group VIII of the U.S.-Russia Bilateral Agreement on the Protection of 
   Environmental and Natural Resources.
