IMPORTANT: ALWAYS USE THE QUALITY FLAG DATA! Each data variable's metadata includes a qcindex attribute which indicates a character number in the flag data. ALWAYS check the flag data for each row of data to see which data is good (flag='Z') and which data isn't. For example, to extract just data where time (qcindex=1), latitude (qcindex=2), longitude (qcindex=3), and airTemperature (qcindex=12) are 'good' data, include this constraint in your ERDDAP query:
flag=~"ZZZ........Z.*"
in your query.
'=~' indicates this is a regular expression constraint.
The 'Z's are literal characters. In this dataset, 'Z' indicates 'good' data.
The '.'s say to match any character.
The '*' says to match the previous character 0 or more times.
(Don't include backslashes in your query.)
