Explanation:
would be one option.

As I understand it, this refers to the practice of rejecting (or modifying) some records because they could be biased for some reason e.g. the station location might be sub-optimal (e.g. not in full sun), or there may be a run of suspect records which would indicate that a piece of equipment is not functioning properly.
