The objective of this program is to detect and correct accidental errors in data from an input tape and then to prepare a new tape which incorporates these changes. Accidental errors are those values in the data which are due to the malfunction of the instrumentation and do not reflect actual changes in the phenomena being observed. Such errors may be caused by noise, static in flights, etc. The program is based upon and incorporates the essential features of the module for accidental errors as outlined in Internal Technical Notes 35 and 41. There are three versions of the program AECO I is designed to handle raw data, i.e., data without header or trailer labels and not arranged into files. AECO II is designed to handle input tapes which consist of only one file, though with header and trailer records. AECO III is an advanced version of AECO II with multifile capability.
