Forwarned is forarmed

Unfortunately we have found out that we will not be able to make any measurements at the Stockholm Arlanda airport until January.  It would have been nice to get a head start on these measurements before the Christmas break, but it was not to be.  However, I think the extra time will be useful, as it will give us a chance to map out our data processing and analysis plans.  This is helpful because it means we can hit the ground running once we have our data, but also since having a firm plan for analysis can improve our data collection methods.  It is painful and all-too-common to come to analysis stage and wish you had collected one extra piece of information or collected it in a slightly different way.  The silver lining of waiting a few extra weeks means we have the opportunity to do that kind of wishing with our pilot data and make any adjustments we need.
