This file defines records passed into the clean archive by data.pass as well as the behavior of various programs that interact with clean data. For example data.aggregate.updateavg averages all records defined in this file. It is located in $DB/etc/$STATION/pass.$STATION.conf or in the default location $DB/etc/pass.conf. If the station specific file does not exist then the default one is used.
Lines beginning with '#' are treated as comments. The format consists of a CSV separated list of key and optional value pairs. Keys are case insensitive.
The valid keys are listed below.
Add a record to the list of ones passed, for example “Pass,S11a” would add the S11a record to the set of those passed in a call to data.pass. For a given station the list of records being passed should encompass all measured aerosol parameters as well as any housekeeping data that might be of interest (for example, sample flow rate).
If set to a true (non-zero or “true”) value then data.pass will call data.aggregate.humidograph to generate humidograph fits when data is passed.
If set to a true (non-zero or “true”) value then data.pass will call data.aggregate.ccnfit to generate CCN fits when data is passed.
If set to a true (non-zero or “true”) value then data.pass will call data.aggregate.editquality to generate a report of the quality of the data being passed.
