GAP . - also need to be explicit that the level of QC on the data is unknown... e.g. for 1:

1. The data are provided as-is with no quality control undertaken by the Centre for Environmental Data Analysis (CEDA). The data suppliers have not indicated if any quality control has been undertaken on these data.
